Content: AMERICAN CULTURAL HISTORY PHD RESEARCH FIELD Robert Westbrook _________________________________ This is my list of material for a PhD research field in American cultural history. Students preparing this field with me should consider all the sources in at least three of the designated source subcategories most nearly in the area of their research interests and at least forty books from the secondary reading. With my permission, titles not on the list may be substituted for those that are. I will not police overlaps with your reading lists for the two parts of the teaching field in American History or your other research field, but I would urge you to avoid any. Books marked with an * are by UR faculty (past and present) and students. Most students will want to carve out a coherent subfield from the longer list, one that suits their interests and research agenda. Since intellectual history is a subfield of cultural history in which I myself have a particular interest and expertise, I have done this myself. Hence, there is some overlap between this list and my list for the field in "American Intellectual History." Feel free to consult that list for additional reading in that subfield. But many other specialized subfields suitable for the qualifying examination might well be carved out of this very diverse and expansive field in cultural history (say, "American Popular Culture," "American Religion," or "Race in American Culture"), and I would be happy to work with students to select a list of secondary reading and sources focused on such a subfield from this long bibliography. All I insist upon in these subfields is a measure of chronological range. Other students, whose research interests are still in formation, might opt for breadth and a wide sampling of work in cultural history. Here too I am happy to advise on the construction of a "greatest hits" selection. PhD students are not required to audit the two-semester undergraduate course in the field (HIS 251/252), but some may find it helpful to do so.
2 SURVEYS Given the diffuseness and breadth of the field, it is perhaps not surprising that there is as yet no first-rate survey of American cultural history. Perhaps the best way to survey the field is to consult seriatim the volumes in the Twayne (now Rowman and Littlefield) series on American Thought and Culture. These are highly recommended. They include E. Brooks Holifield, Era of Persuasion: American Thought and Culture 1521-1680 Ned Landsman, From Colonials to Provincials: American Thought and Culture, 16801760 Robert Shalhope, Roots of Democracy: American Thought and Culture, 1760-1800 Jean Matthews, Toward a New Society: American Thought and Culture, 1800-1830 Anne Rose, Voices in the Marketplace: American Thought and Culture, 1830-1860 Louise Stevenson, The Victorian Homefront: American Thought and Culture, 1860-1880 George Cotkin, Reluctant Modernism: American Thought and Culture, 1880-1900 *Daniel Borus, Twentieth-Century Multiplicity: American Thought and Culture, 19001920 Terry Cooney, Balancing Acts: American Thought and Culture in the 1930s William Graebner, The Age of Doubt: American Thought and Culture in the 1940s *Casey Blake, Daniel Borus, and Howard Brick, At the Center: American Thought and Culture in the Mid-Twentieth Century, 1948-1963 (forthcoming) Howard Brick, Age of Contradiction: American Thought and Culture in the 1960s J. David Hoeveler, Postmodernist Turn: American Thought and Culture in the 1970s James Livingston, The World Turned Inside Out: American Thought and Culture at the End of the 20th Century Although confined to the twentieth century, another good series you might wish to consult is the Twentieth-Century American Culture series from Edinburgh University Press: Mark Whalen, American Culture in the 1910s Susan Currell, American Culture in the 1920s David Eldridge, American Culture in the 1930s Jacqueline Foertsch, American Culture in the 1940s Martin Halliwell, American Culture in the 1950s Sharon Monteith, American Culture in the 1960s Will Kaufman, American Culture in the 1970s Graham Thompson, American Culture in the 1980s Colin Harrison, American Culture in the 1990s An invaluable reference work is Karen Halttunen, ed., A Companion to American Cultural History, and a fine "state-of-the-field" collection is James Cook, Lawrence Glickman, and Michael O'Malley, eds., The Cultural Turn in U.S. History. I would also recommend H.L. Mencken, The American Language, Jim Crotty, How to Talk American, Stuart Flexner, I Hear America Talking, and George Stewart, American Place-Names.
3 SOURCE BOOKS There is no good, comprehensive anthology of sources in American cultural history. I would recommend a decent, older series of documents, The American Culture (Braziller), edited by some of the leaders of the field. These include: John Demos, Remarkable Providences, 1600-1760 Gordon Wood, The Rising Glory, 1760-1820 David Grimsted, Notions of the Americans, 1820-1860 Alan Trachtenberg, Democratic Vistas, 1860-1880 Neil Harris, The Land of Contrasts, 1880-1901 Roderick Nash, The Call of the Wild, 1900-1916 Robert Sklar, The Plastic Age, 1917-1930 Warren Susman, Culture and Commitment, 1929-1945 REQUIRED SOURCES (CHOOSE AT LEAST THREE SUB-CATEGORIES) Rather than devise a separate section on film, I have distributed film sources throughout the other sub-categories. I have copies of many of the films, record albums, and TV shows listed here, which students are welcome to borrow. ARCHITECTURE/URBANISM Jane Jacobs, Death and Life of Great American Cities Lewis Mumford, The Culture of Cities Louis Sullivan, Kindergarten Chats Frank Lloyd Wright, The Essential Frank Lloyd Wright (Take a look at Boynton House, 16 East Blvd., the one Frank Lloyd Wright building in Rochester.)

For one such list, see the American Film Institute's "100 Greatest American Movies" ( You might profit by some of the articles in The Columbia Companion to American History on Film, edited by Peter Rollins. I also highly recommend David Thompson, The New Biographical Dictionary of Film. GENDER/SEXUALITY Judith Butler, Gender Trouble Ellen DuBois, ed., The Elizabeth Cady Stanton-Susan B. Anthony Reader
