This guide was created for students in Dr. Jensen's North American Maritime Frontiers (AMH 4990) class.  This course examines the establishment and development of North American maritime frontiers from the Age of European Exploration to the end of the 20th century. The course incorporates the cultural, environmental, political, and material dimensions of frontier.  Topics include defining “frontiers,” Atlantic maritime culture, Westward expansion, environmental history, marine technology, public health, shipwrecks, and cultural landscapes.  Use the tabs above for help finding information and resources for your research paper.
