HIST 264 - History of Working People

(3 credits)
This course asks how work has changed over time. Students taking this class are introduced to some of the latest and most important historical literature that addresses the subject. They also work with primary source material, from the pre- or early-modern period and the 20th and 21st centuries, in order to come up with their own conclusion on the changing nature of work. The course is global in scope. Both primary and secondary sources will shed light on histories of various groups of men, women and children who have sought to earn an honest day’s living.  Fall, odd numbered years
