History 219: Illinois and Local History   Leave a comment

Jim Edstrom, Professor of Library Services and History, will be teaching History 219 – Illinois and Local History – during the Spring 2012 semester.

This course focuses on the story of the Prairie State from prehistory to the present day, exploring:

  • The impact of the state’s geography upon its history.
  • The contributions of different groups—European, African-American, Native American, male and female—in the economic, social, political, and literary development of Illinois.
  • The ways in which the history of this state illustrates, amplifies, and explains the larger history of the United States.

 History 219 will meet on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 3:30pm to 4:45pm in Room J160.

* History 219 is intended to help current and prospective students meet Illinois State Goal 16 for social studies.
