Cross listed: Gender & Sexuality Studies   In 1848 a series of mysterious raps soon bought notoriety to Kate and Maggie Fox, two young women from Rochester, New York and thus the American Spiritualist movement was born.  During the forty year period that the Fox sisters soared to fame  (and then plummeted into obscurity and ignominy when one sister claimed the raps were faked) America experienced a myriad of changes—abolition, women’s suffrage and great technological advances—all of which found a connection to Spiritualism.  In this course we will examine the social, religious, economic and political forces that helped shape the Spiritualist movement.  Essential to our discussion is the work of William James who attempted to place Spiritualism within the legitimate scientific community.    The novels of Henry James, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and William Dean Howells will provide both a critique of Spiritualism and demonstrate its cultural impact.  The peculiar role of New York State in the shaping of the Spiritualist movement—from the politically progressive community of Rochester, to New York City and the Barnum Hotel—will also be a point of interest.  In an era when the telegraph sent messages over incredible distances, Spiritualism’s assertion that messages could be sent between two worlds interrogated the relationship between faith and science.  Class size: 15
