Abstract

[Helen Lefkowitz Horowitz’s 1987 Campus Life represented the culmination of historical scholarship about American college students spurred by the tumultuous 1960s. This chapter examines the historiography of college students in the three decades since Campus Life, during which historians have provided more insights into Horowitz’s “ways of being an undergraduate”—college men and women, outsiders, and rebels—while also nuancing this categorization. Hevel and Jaeckle outline how historians have broadened their focus to include subpopulations, such as African American, Asian American, Latino, and LGBTQ students, and types of institutions not prominent in Horowitz’s work. The chapter focuses on student populations, organizations, and behavior. This review of the literature also suggests opportunities for further research, and considers the potential for further synthesis of the history of college students.]
