Course Design and Goals

The course is a seminar, which means an opportunity to discuss readings in the field with the instructor and students during our Friday meetings.  Each week, the class will have assigned readings, and it is necessary that you complete the readings before class so that we discuss them. In addition, each student will develop their own course project that examines a topic of their choosing. This project includes sharing with the class the topic’s theoretical problems, some of what the student is learning from historical sources, and how the student is approaching their work. Ultimately, each student will produce an original essay on the topic. 

 

Friday Sessions:

Students must show up to class with the assigned reading completed. Students should take good notes so that they can discuss the readings in depth. In addition, as participation is a major portion of your overall course grade, be ready to interact with the instructor and the other students. 

 

Required Reading:

Steven Lawson and Charles Payne, Debating the Civil Rights Movement, 1945-1968 (2006).
