HIST 154 PZ -U.S. Labor History


Institution: Pitzer

Description:  

This course examines the changing meaning of labor in the United States as the nation evolved from a collection of farmers to the greatest industrial power in the world, and then into “post-industrial” economy with which we are still grappling. The focus will be on the struggles between workers and employers for control, including such things as “scientific management,” unions, political movements and on-the-job resistance. We will also examine the connections between labor, the national state, and globalization; and the interplay of class consciousness with racial and gender identity. The period since 1880 is emphasized.

Prerequisite(s): Some familiarity with U.S. history (HIST 26 or similar introductory course) is recommend, but not required. Please also check the current course schedule for requirements.

For up-to-date information on current course offerings and details, please refer to the Pitzer class schedule on MyCampus2 Portal.
