Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will further their knowledge of Civil War era photography and of the aftermath of battle.
Students will be able to analyze the primary sources we will be working with. 
Students will get a better idea of my teaching style to determine if my longer history courses would be a good fit for them.
My Masters degree is in American Studies and I spent a great deal of my graduate studies focusing on the Civil War, Westward Expansion, and the Industrial Revolution. I have been teaching both US and World History courses both off and on Outschool for several years. For this particular class I am relying on primary sources as my main source material but have studied this era in history during both my undergrad and grad courses, as well as in my own personal studies of United States History.
A pdf of all materials will be provided.
No live meetings, and maybe some time outside of class.
We will be working with photographs taken in the aftermath of Civil War battles and these photographs do show deceased soldiers. There are no close-up pictures or gore shown, but it is clear that people in the pictures are deceased. We will also be discussing the death that accompanies war and some of the lasting effects of the Civil War.
All materials are provided for students. We will be analyzing Civil War era photographs by Alexander Gardner.
