CORE 003 SC - Home/Politics/Activism 19thC US


This course explores how Americans mobilized home and domesticity for political ends during the 19th century. We’ll read writers who conceived of home as a space for transformative political change, including women of color for whom home was a space of resistance and Transcendentalists who founded the experimental Brook Farm Community. We’ll also learn about archival research into 19thC home life and how historians, literary critics, and other scholars study forms of domestic activism that left trances not in published writing but rather in diaries, commonplace books, and material objects. Students will put this knowledge to practice through research on 19thC past points to opportunities for everyday activism in the present.

Course Credit: 1.0
