HIST 354 The Great Depression & the New Deal: the U.S. in the 1930s


This upper level history course will explore the Great Depression, from the election of Herbert Hoover in 1928 to the start of WWII, from three main perspectives: the changing role of the presidency and the politics of the period, the social response to the economic crisis, and the cultural innovation of the era. Through readings and the examination of primary sources including songs, speeches, films, poems, plays students will explore the relationship between the individual and the time in which s/he lives and complete a research project on Chicago during the Great Depression. Special emphasis will be given to the creative fervor of an unusual chapter in US history and the artistic and documentary production of the decade.
