Section Information for Fall 2017
This course explores the development of various reform movements that grew out of the religious transformation of the Second Great Awakening and tracks their successes, failures and evolutions overtime through the Progressive Era. In addition to examining social reform movements of abolitionism, women’s rights, temperance, Indian reform, and moral reform, the course will cover a host of other movements including experiments of living in communes and utopian societies, both religious and secular, and activism around diet and health, education, child labor, birth control, contract labor, anti-lynching and the care for the indigent, mentally ill, orphans and prisoners. An intersectional framework that takes into account gender, race, class, ethnicity, and sexuality will inform the courses approach to these various movements.
