Course Description

According to Colin Woodard, North America generally comprises eleven rival regional cultures. Geographically, they do not fit within what constitutes the north, south, east, or west. They straddle the international boundaries between the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. Their boundaries do not coincide with the legal borders of states or provinces, and each has its own distinct historical roots. Starting with the late 16th century, this re-look at the nation shows you why we have such a fractured understanding about our past, present, and future. This is the first of a two-part series, based upon the scholarship of Colin Woodward, and provides an added level of clarity about differing views of our nation’s history, its present condition, and where it is going. Discussions cover the reasons for the resurgence of populism and tribalism.
