This course focuses on the history of race, class, and gender and the mechanisms of social conflict and social change from the late nineteenth century to the present.

American Drug Wars

This unique course offers a survey of the American experience with drugs and follows the history of alcohol, tobacco, pharmaceuticals, and prohibited intoxicants from the colonial era to the present.
