U.S. 19th Century

Americanists who study the nineteenth century ask questions about a wide variety of topics, including U.S. foreign policy, Chinese migration, visual culture, philanthropy, gender and sexuality, African-American working class women, the Civil War and Reconstruction, global imperialism, and Mexican-American history. Geographical strengths include the South and the American West. Faculty members have strong connections with African American Studies, American Studies, and Urban Studies.
