HS 3850 - American Empire: Politics and Cultures of American Imperialism

In this course, students will examine and analyze the emergence and development of political, cultural, and intellectual institutions and movements that were fundamental in the expansion, contestation, and negotiation of American imperialism in various parts of the world from the late nineteenth century to the contemporary era.

Students will develop a greater understanding of the formation and development of the rhetoric and policies used by the American state in establishing political, economic, and cultural hegemony around the world in the modern era; and the multiple strategies used by different groups within the domestic and global landscape to confront, resist, challenge, and negotiate American imperialism.
