Course Description

This lecture course will examine changes in the history of women, sexuality, and gender from the first colonial settlements through the Civil War. Drawing on a range of sources, including women's and mens political, imaginative, and private writings as well as the work of historians, we will explore the changing relation of gender and sexuality to families, economics, politics, religions, and culture. We will pay special attention to the ways that changes in gender roles and attitudes toward sexuality altered the lives of both men and women in these years.

SAME AS HIS 317L (TOPIC 5).
