HIST1023A-W14

CRN: 11107

Unnatural Border

Unnatural Border
In this course we will explore how the U.S.-Mexico border transformed from a “line in the sand” to a place of increasing physical presence. The 20th century brought customs stations and fences to channel bodies through a federally regulated space. Over time, fences and check points transformed into walls, buildings, and a network of roads built to control the movement of mobile nature: people, animals, and pathogens. Using both primary and secondary texts, documentaries, and news articles, we will learn why federal agencies created an unnatural border and how it has affected immigration and the environment in the borderlands. This course counts as elective credit towards the History major.

“Il Nuovo Mondo:” Italian Contributions to American Culture*
Between 1880 and 1920, more than four millions Italians migrated to the U.S.A. In this course we will explore this diaspora in historical, social, and economic terms by analyzing the situation in Italy in the 1860s and 1870s and the perception of the new world as a “promised land.” We will consider the hardship of the uprooting experience of every migrant, the conflicts with previous immigrants, and the problems of cultural integration. We will also examine the Italian-American contributions to various areas of American life (e.g. music, food, etc.) We will also explore the exceptional situation of Italians in Vermont.

Ni Yankees ni Marxismo:Peron

Ni Yankees ni Marxismo: Peronismo: Its Origins and Political Development, Its Cultural Projection, and Its Relationship with the U.S. (Offered in English)
In this course we will consider the rise of Populism and its political experience in Argentina in order to study the cultural core of the Peronist social movement. Through the study of oral history, popular culture, and personalities such as Juan Perón, Eva Perón, and Brasil’s Getúlio Vargas we will examine the building of political popular sentiment and the continental nature of Populism. In addition we will examine the interaction between Peronism and U.S. foreign policy and how it shaped the Argentinian experience. This course counts as elective credit towards the History major.
