HIST 421D restricted to 4th year History honours students
American Material Culture - This introduction to American material culture considers the history of things. Topics may include print and visual media; museums, collecting practices, artifacts, and mementos; architecture, decorative arts, and design; clothing; food; consumerism, crafting, and DIY cultures. We will examine the relationship between production and consumption; consider how objects change their meanings as they move through time and space; and explore how the stuff of life has reflected (and sometimes challenged) distinctions of gender, race, class, and age. This course will allow students to develop skills in analyzing a range of historical artifacts, and to work more closely with some sources of their choosing.
