HIST 214 - The Good, the Bad and the Ugly: North American Borderlands

(3 credits)
This class studies American frontiers and borderlands, including the U.S.-Mexico and U.S.-Canada borders, and the borderlands created by U.S. western expansion. Intercultural collisions and encounters amongst these various individuals and communities constituted U.S. history from the pre-Columbian era to the present. Studying these intercultural collisions and encounters amongst various individuals and communities enables students to transnationalize their understanding of history while acknowledging the multiplicity of narratives within the American past.  As needed.
