HIST 156 PZ -American Empire: 1898 & After

Institution: Pitzer

Description: The Spanish-American War of 1898 inaugurated more than a century of American adventurism abroad and gave the U.S. its first taste of colonial administration. Starting with a look at turn-of-the-century theorists of empire, we will examine the war in its domestic political and cultural context, then turn to its subsequent ramifications for both colonizer and colonized-including a brief consideration of present-day imperial dreams.

Prerequisite(s): Some familiarity with U.S. history (HIST 026 PZ or similar introductory course) is helpful, but not required Please also check the current course schedule for requirements.

For up-to-date information on current course offerings and details, please refer to the Pitzer class schedule on MyCampus2 Portal.
