Re: H-SHGAPE Question of the Week: Transnational History and the GAPE

I incorporate transnational ideas when I teach the Progressive Era by leaning on the scholarship of Daniel R. Rodgers. As explained by Rodgers, many American Progressives were inspired by similar reformers in Europe, especially Germany and Britain. For example, I often use Frederic Howe's "The German and the American City" to show my students how Progressives often compared conditions in the United States with those in Europe in order to make their arguments.

Re: H-SHGAPE Question of the Week: W. E. B. Du Bois

The works of W.E.B. DuBois are excellent tools for teaching the GAPE for a variety of reasons. First and foremost, DuBois's advocacy of political rights for black Americans provides a nice contrast to Booker T. Washington's emphasis on economic independence. Moreover, these competing approaches to improving the lives of African-Americans during the nadir of the post-abolition black experience offer an opportunity for students to consider and debate the merits and potential problems of each approach.
