I am on sabbatical leave this year (2013-14) but will teach some weeks in the graduate course, History 6020.

Click on the links below to see my reading lists and discussion questions.

History 6020: Select Topics in U.S. History
This is the York graduate course that prepares students for their Ph.D. qualifying exams. It's a team taught course organized by two documents: the syllabus and the field list. Students can also see discussion questions for the weeks that I'm leading.

And here's my guide to formulating thesis and main division statements.
