There are many approaches to the study of the past: political, social, cultural, economic, Atlantic, continental, comparative, and more. This research course explores the study of history through a broad set of writings on the Americas in the top academic journals, with an emphasis on issues of race and slavery. Students also research and write an article-length essay for submission to an appropriate journal.
