Course Description This course examines American labor and working-class history from the early Republic to the 1990s, with a particular focus on how worker responses to economic change have shaped American social, political, and cultural history more broadly. Our discussions will cover a range of topics, including a comparison of free and unfree labor in the antebellum period, the rise of factory work and wage labor, the emergence of labor unions and radical political parties, the relationship between organized labor and the state, the impact of globalization, the disruptive role of technology, and the persistence of working-class conservatism. Throughout we will pay close attention to how differences of gender, race, and region have shaped the ideas and actions of American workers, both in cooperation and competition with one another, as those workers influenced the history of the United States.
