AMH5405: History of the New South 3
This course introduces students to the history of the American South after the Civil War. We will consider the separate regions of the South - lowcountry, piedmont, mountain - and how these change over time. A central focus of the course will be the development and changes in southerners' thinking about race and racial difference. We will also consider the other ways southerners identified and organized themselves - by gender, class, religious beliefs, political ideologies, and residence.
