Westward Bound: The West in American History

History 257

Usual Description

This course surveys major events in Western history, from the journey of Cabeza de Vaca and the Pueblo revolt, to the Gold Rush and the Mexican American War, to World War II, the rise of the urban West, and 1960?s political mobilization from Tierra Amarilla to Orange County to the Castro. We explore the West variously as a geographic region, a place of cultural mixing, and the object of desire and fantasy.
