Descriptif du cours : “How it all started: English Colonial America”

(cours offert uniquement pour la rentrée 2018-2019)

Before the US the way you know them now, this large territory was peopled with Native Americans, white settlers, indentured servants, slaves and many others. This course aims at laying the basis of your understanding of present day America by focusing on the beginnings of North America, as wild territories and colonies. Where does the debate over gun control come from? Why are there so many racial tensions? What are the origins of social diversity? Why are the US considered as a superpower? If you attend this course, hard work and critical thinking will provide you with all the answers.
