Examines the history of the American city - its people, its culture, and its politics. The course examines why cities look the way they do, and why cities are disproportionately poor and minority, while suburbs are not. Students consider such questions as: Are cities are in crisis? Can - and should - they be saved? The course looks at why cities are the way they are, and whether they still matter in an increasingly suburban nation. The course will also consider how these larger issues apply to nearby cities, such as New Bedford, Fall River, and Providence. Cross-listed as PST 369.

Examines past and present-day racial controversies, such as school segregation, the civil rights movement, affirmative action and reparations, from an historical perspective. The focus is on how race has shaped belief, identities, policies, politics and opportunities since the Civil War, and how Americans of all backgrounds have understood the dilemma of race.

Examines the history, politics and legacy of the U.S. war in Southeast Asia. Military strategy, policy debates, the experiences of soldiers, and domestic politics are examined, with the goal of understanding larger questions of American foreign policy past and present.
