Required Reading: There will be some required reading for the course (5-7 articles or short written “lectures” or other out-of-class work totaling 50-75 pages all together) which will be provided via Learnweb (or links) as the course proceeds.

Recommended Reading: For those who feel the need for additional information on the topics covered in class, you might want to access a good online U.S. history textbook, i.e. at http://www.ushistory.org/us/index.asp

and/or for more culture-based material the standard ESL textbook on the subject: 

Neil Campbell and Alasdair Kean. American Cultural Studies: An Introduction to American Culture.  Edition.  Routledge: London and New York, 2016.



After earning my B.A. in English (with a focus on British and American novels) from Washington and Lee University in 1982, I pursued graduate studies in history at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville from 1986-1987, then completed my Master's Degree in American Studies at Purdue University in 1994 and my PhD in American History (with minor fields in Ancient History and the History of Science and Technology) in 2004, also at Purdue. In the meantime and since, besides teaching a full range of courses in American History, Government and Culture as well as Western Civilization (including Great Britain and the British Empire), I have also worked at a number of public history venues in the U.S. (including for the National Park Service and five years at Thomas Jefferson's Monticello) as well as authored entries for American History, the History of Science  and other reference and classroom volumes.


Course Description: After almost a century of global economic and then military dominance by the United States

(soon to be superseded by China, India et al?), it may be hard to remember that only a little

over a hundred years ago, a small island nation on the periphery of Europe “ruled” over 1/5

of the world’s population, possessed the largest and most modern navy on the globe, and still

served as the economic epicenter of the western world (though even then rapidly losing that positon

to the U.S. and Germany), as it had ever since theIndustrial Revolution started there nearly two centuries before. 


Onthe heels of Great Britain’s rise to world power status came the English language itself and

British culture more generally, so that even today students read Shakespeare, Austen and Dickens

in places as wide apart as Adelaide, Australia, Norman, Oklahoma and in fact across Europe as well.

Meanwhile, the influence of all things British, from the monarchy to the Beatles to Arsenal,has continued

well beyond the end of the British empire itself, down to the present day.  And though Great Britain

now wrestles with many of the same issues facing all the “mature” western democracies, from deindustrialization

to the challenges of transforming itself into a multi-cultural society and now trying to manage the aftermath of Brexit, 

it does so against a unique backdrop of great historic depth and complexity.


Course Goals:  Using a combination of textual and audio-visual (music, film, art, architecture, material culture) sources,

lecture and discussion (depending on class size), this class will explore the socio-cultural, economic, political

and other “contexts” of modern and historic Britain.  In the process, students will not only develop a greater

understanding of British culture and heritage (useful in and of itself for both translation and intercultural understanding)

but also the richness of the English language as utilized by some of its best practitioners.
