A study of the people, places, demographics, institutions, politics, culture, and national context of the federal Prohibition (of alcohol) era in Chicago. Students will learn not only about historical events and personages, but also consider the interplay of various social, political, and economic factors that made the Prohibition era within Chicago unique.
The cost to students will be a flat fee of $1,600 per course. Classes will run 12 days: two sessions of five days separated by a break of two days. January classes run from Dec. 26 to Jan. 6. Register for January courses using the spring registration schedule. Students already with 18 credit hours for fall or spring will need an overload permit to register for a J-term class in that same term. The last day to withdraw from winter term courses is the first day of class.
