Course Descriptions: Spring 2014 - HTY 609: Historiography of the Northeastern Borderlands Region

Instructor:  Jacques Ferland

Time:  Thursday;  3:30 – 5:30 pm

Description:  This course explores the history of an important region in northeastern North America employing a borderlands approach. While the histories of the Atlantic Provinces, Quebec, and northern New England are typically constructed within the framework of regional and international boundaries, an emerging historiography hints at the prospect of understanding themes by applying trans-regional and international approaches. Indeed, from the earliest period of European contact with native peoples, the Atlantic Provinces, Quebec, and New England have shared a riochly textured history that includes such significant themes as conflict, trade, migration patterns, class tensions, and cultural issues.
