STS.427 The Civil War and the Emergence of Modern America, 1861-1890 (MIT) STS.427 The Civil War and the Emergence of Modern America, 1861-1890 (MIT)

Description

Using the American Civil War as a baseline, the course considers what it means to become "modern" by exploring the war's material and manpower needs, associated key technologies, and how both influenced the United States' entrance into the age of "Big Business." Readings include material on steam transportation, telegraphic communications, arms production, naval innovation, food processing, medicine, public health, management methods, and the mass production of everything from underwear to uniforms—all essential ingredients of modernity. Students taking the graduate version must complete additional assignments.
