HIST 307 - Exploring Early American History at Old Sturbridge Village


Students will explore society and culture in New England in the years between the Revolution and the Civil War.  Classes will meet frequently at Old Sturbridge Village, the living museum of New England history, with some sessions at Clark.  We will study life and death, health and medicine, work, family, sexuality, housing and landscape, everyday life, religion, and community life.  We will pursue these topics through readings, discussions, and extensive use of the museum’s resources – primary documents, paintings and engravings, artifact collections, historical exhibits, historic buildings and landscapes, and programs of historical farming and crafts.
