HIST 2042 Jim Crow & Exclusion Era in America (also AAS 2041, AMST 2042) (HA-AS) (HNA)

Tuesday and Thursday: 1:00-2:15 (online)

Professor Derek Chang

This seminar examines America during the overlapping eras of segregation & immigration exclusion.  Beginning with contests over the weaning of freedom during reconstruction and running through the institution of Jim Crow legislation and immigration exclusion, the course ends with an evaluation of mid-20th century movements for civil rights and equality.  Themes include the links between racial and economic oppression, legal and defacto restriction, everyday resistance, and struggles for equality.
