This class will explore what the experience did to and for the American middle class. Although a terrible time economically for many Americans, the trauma of the Great Depression helped shift American values, priorities and public policies in new directions that helped lay the foundations for rapid middle class growth thereafter. These changes included not just matters of economics and politics but also social and cultural ones, and the class will explore them all.
