HISTORY 196 - First-Year Seminar
Section: 001 French Lives in History and Place
Term: FA 2010
Subject: History (HISTORY)
Department: LSA History
Course Note:
A basic introduction to historical thinking and method through small-course seminar experience. Topics vary from term to term; however, no matter what the topic, students can expect to spend a great deal of time learning to think critically about historical questions and to write well. As such, the First-Year seminar should serve as an introduction to upper-level course work in history and related fields of study.

Primary Instructor:

A revolutionary artisan in 1792, a Jewish military officer accused of treason in the 1890s, a fascist collaborator in World War II, a peasant woman from the Alps who became an anarchist, a young boy growing up Franco-Algerian in the suburbs of Marseille who became an international soccer star? What do these people have in common? All of their lives can help us reflect on the history of France and the changing meanings of social identity in the modern period. This course will read biographies and auto-biographies in order to explore how these individuals made sense of their culture, the spaces they lived in, and their moment in history.
