The Recent American Past: 1980s – 2010s

Nancy Young

The 40-some-odd years from the era of Ronald Reagan to the age of Donald Trump could not be more unalike. Though he had his critics, Reagan was a popular, likeable president who united Americans eager to recover from the turmoil of the 1970s. Indeed, the 1980s saw a return to prosperity alongside an end to the Cold War. In the 1990s, nascent divisions emerged that — in hindsight — foreshadowed more recent partisan cleavages. Americans mostly united again in the 2000s in response to a devastating terrorist attack, but the 2010s brought renewed division. This class will take a look at the recent American past and explore the changing cultural landscape from the 1980s to 2010s.

This class will be held onsite at WIH and simulcast via Zoom.
