A curricular collaboration project to reconceptualize the research and teaching of the Gilded Age and Progressive Era.

The State University of New York at Cortland (SUNY Cortland), a comprehensive liberal arts college within the 64-campus State University of New York system, proposes leading a multi-campus faculty study group with 20 historians whose research and teaching interests include the period in American history commonly referred to as the Gilded Age and Progressive Era, or GAPE. Led by Dr. Kevin Sheets and Dr. Randi Storch, the project brings together participants and invited scholars to assess the state of the field; to incorporate the latest research into new and revised courses; and to develop and disseminate resources for high school and college-level instructors.
