HIST 272: Debating America in the World

Paul Kramer is an associate professor of history and author of The Blood of Government: Race, Empire, the United States and the Philippines.  In HIST 272, he guides upper level undergraduates as they consider the role of the United States in the world, considering issues of world leadership, power politics, and immigration control. The course is driven by primary documents, and seeks to help students develop an understanding of the U.S.’s evolving role within the world through carefully reconstructing arguments from period voices. Paul uses discussion, small group work, and role-playing to help students engage with the debates that have surrounded the U.S.’s shifting roles. In the post-visit discussion, we will discuss the pedagogical choices Paul makes, including how he helps students grapple with the influence of race and power  on the U.S.’s global presence.
