Term: SP 2008
Subject: Medieval and Early Modern Studies (MEMS)
Department: LSA History
Requirements & Distribution:
May not be repeated for credit.
Primary Instructor:

This course discusses aspects of European history between the late Roman era and the eighteenth century. It is more topical than chronological, and I use original images and original sources in the classroom. I emphasize analysis over memorization. We do a lot of discussion of both sources and images (autobiographies, travel accounts, trial records, art, architecture, doodles). We begin with the rise of Christianity and Islam, and we will end with Galileo, Newton, and the European takeoff. I don't cover everything, but I try to offer a sampling of different sorts of topics; and I am always open to suggestions that reflect student interest. I am particularly interested in pointing out ways in which something that seems foreign has in fact become part of our everyday life.

Grading comes from participation in class, a midterm exam, and a final. There are also opportunities for extra credit projects.
