19th century US Cultural/Social History Programs


Recommended Posts

I am currently searching for strong programs for 19th century US history from a cultural and social perspective.

The following schools are the ones that I wish to apply to:

-UC Berkeley (primarily for Henkin)

-UPenn (primarily for McCurry, but also Peiss and Brown)

-Penn State (primarily for Greenberg)

-Wisconsin-Madison (Johnson; unsure about this one??)

-Michigan (Cook, McClellan)

-Indiana (Sandweiss, Dierks, Spang (culture in France))

Any other recommendations? Thank you!

Thanks. Any other suggestions?

What are your more specific interests? I know more Southern history places. If you are open to American Studies UT Austin is also really good at everything especially the Southwest though, they may be worth looking at. Out of curiousity, are you in school in New Orleans?

I am more specifically interested in what the consumer and popular culture from that time reveal about the larger changes within the 19th century. I am not very interested in pursuing an American Studies PhD. I am a part of TFA in Nola.
