M. C. Garcia.

How would our understanding of U.S. History change if we began the national narrative in 16th century New Mexico rather than 17th century Virginia? What does U.S. history look like when examined as hemispheric history? What if we were to bring the periphery to the center and examine U.S. History from the vantage point of the colonized and the immigrant, the exile and the transnational? This course seeks to reframe U.S. history by reconstituting what we understand as “American” history. We will examine territorial expansion and empire, migration and nation building, industrialization and labor, war and revolution, and citizenship and transnationalism in the “American experience” broadly defined to include americanos of Spanish, Mexican, Caribbean, and Central/South American ancestries.
