HSTAA 110 History of American Citizenship
Professor John Findlay
"Citizenship is crucial because it defines the relationship of people to their nation. Focusing on the topic illuminates much U.S. history."
- Professor John M. Findlay
This course presents a clear, thematic focus on citizenship – an issue that is of enduring interest and importance today. By examining how, when, and why different groups of people (e.g., white men, white men without property, peoples of color including one-time slaves, women, immigrants) became eligible for citizenship throughout American history, this course explores how and why for many peoples, at many times, citizenship did not confer equal rights to all.
