How would you define “progressivism” in the United States in the period we are studying (c. 1890-1914)? Who were “progressives?” And did “progressivism” in this era means the same thing as “progressivism” today? What, if anything, has changed?
You could consider any, or none, of the following:
Why does “progressivism” emerge in this period?
How was Progressivism related to the Gilded Age and/or imperialism?
Is the United States still shaped by “Progressivism” today? Why or why not? (Should it be?)
