HIST.3587 Women in Early America

Id: 042269 Credits Min: 3 Credits Max: 3


Spanish, French, British, Dutch, Native American, and African American women had varying experiences on the North American continent between 1500 and 1800. This class uses ten case studies on topics ranging from the colonial borderlands to gender identity in the early modern period to the impact of slavery on family structures to examine their daily lives. In addition, students are introduced to the many scholars who have worked in this field during the past four decades, before considering new directions for the study of women in Early America.
