Winter 2012 quarter

Nancy Koppelman American studies
Fields of Study
American studies, history, literature and philosophy
Preparatory for studies or careers in
American studies and history.

Individual study offers the advanced, highly disciplined student the opportunity to pursue a self-directed and self-constructed syllabus. The work may be completely academic in nature, or may be combined with an internship. Students interested in pursuing such work in American Studies are invited to contact me. I specialize in American history before 1920, particularly social history, industrialization, economic history, American literature, popular culture, pragmatism, and the history of technology, and how all these topics intersect with ethical concerns of the modern era. I am interested in working with students who want to study American history and culture in an effort to understand contemporary social, cultural, and political concerns. (Students interested in this offering are also encouraged to consider enrolling in Writing American Cultures , where they can pursue a major independent project as part of an ongoing learning community.) Students with a lively sense of self-direction, discipline, and intellectual curiosity are encouraged to contact me via e-mail at koppelmn@evergreen.edu.
