ES 463 - Us Empire/Imperialism, Settler/Colonialism, Capitalism/Race

Description
How and when did the United States become an empire? This course approaches the historical and contemporary actions of the United States as both a continental and global empire through historiography, socio-political, economic, and racial analyses of U.S. hegemony. Students will learn from recent interdisciplinary scholars who have worked to understand the development of U.S. empire as a series of overlapping cultural projects in the homeland, and beyond the borders of the United States as mutually constitutive of political, and economic, and cultural processes of empire-building, that is capital accumulation, and power.
