Sex and Sexualities in U.S. History

HIST 304 syllabus on Google DocsThis semester at Colgate, I’ve revised my upper-level History course, Sex and Sexualities in U.S. History.

The current HIST 304 syllabus lives on Google Docs, here.

I’ve also updated my unwieldy list of Digital Archives, Projects & Resources for U.S. Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality History for research and teaching.

We don’t have nearly enough time to explore 250 years of U.S. history, but I’m excited to get students reading some of my favorite history sites, too, including:

In a few weeks we’ll be dipping into the Colgate archives, and driving out to my favorite local history site, the Oneida Community Mansion House. Later in the semester, HIST 304 students will also be using the 2019 OAH Annual Meeting Program to identify trends and new work in the history of sexuality, as part of a larger reflection on the state of the field (and in celebration of the 25th birthday of George Chauncey’s Gay New York).

I’ll be tweeting some course highlights using the hashtag #HIST304 and I’m always curious how others are teaching similar courses. Got a great primary source or idea to share? Hit me up!
