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.
