This course will give you a broad introduction to the scholarship on U.S. imperialism, focusing on transnational and global approaches to history.  Examining the evolution of the field over the past three decades, we will focus on the interrelated shifts of a cultural turn that has illuminated issues of race, gender, and imperialism, and the globalization of the study of the United States.  In addition to considering the transnational circulation of culture and political projects (state and non-state), we will consider global approaches to the reconfigurations of capital, comparative and transnational studies of consumption, gender, and the family, and the transformation of international sovereignty inaugurated by the "Wilsonian moment" and Bolshevik revolution (with attention to tensions between sovereignty and transnational institutions and politics movements.)
