Write an analytic essay in response to the following prompt. The purpose of this essay is to synthesize the materials we have covered in class so far, to think through the course themes, and to use them analytically to discuss the development of the United States and its relationship to the world by examining specific historical contexts. Your essay will be evaluated for clarity of argument, use of evidence, rigor of analysis, grasp of course themes/concepts, and organization/grammar.

The United States underwent drastic social, cultural, and political transformation during the 20th century. As Americans endeavored to define and redefine the nation in this period, individuals and groups conflicted about how to do so. How did the political, economic, and social changes of the 20th century impact various groups and regions differently? How did people respond to these pervasive changes? How did they respond to each other? Draw on one of the following analytic concepts we have covered in class to frame your argument and center your discussion.

  • ï‚·  Incorporation and Empire

  • ï‚·  Meanings of “Freedom”

  • ï‚·  Master narrative

    Make a clear argument that addresses this question. You may touch on more than one analytic theme as they are interrelated, but make sure your argument is clear and well supported with specific examples (evidence).
