HIS-3167 Women in Vermont History

3 credits

Prerequisite: None.

As late as the 1970s, women were almost entirely written out of Vermont history. Women's historians have made considerable strides in correcting this gross omission. This course has been developed to, first and foremost, retell the "Vermont Story" from the vantage point of women's experiences and, second, to provide a methods for bringing women into the curriculum. It will be taught in a compressed format and meet for one week during the summer. Students will be expected to complete the required readings before the course begins and to submit an original research project one month after the course ends.
