HIST7458: U.S. Internationalism, 1865-1920

Dr David Sim

The United States is often assumed to have an isolationist heritage, built on the geographical and political separation of the New World from the Old. This course will explore an alternative interpretation of the United States’ relations with the wider world, focusing on the evolution of American internationalism between the U.S. Civil War and the Treaty of Versailles. In particular, we will focus on the development of American ideas about ordering the international community, the relationship between internationalism and American imperialism, and the connections between domestic and foreign politics.
