Southeast Asia is one of the world's most culturally diverse regions, home to Buddhist, Muslim, Confucian, and Christian civilizations. It boasts ancient monuments of surpassing grandeur and symbolic complexity. It was the scene of the bloodiest conflict since 1945, the Vietnam War. Until recently it had the world's fastest growing regional economy, and it remains an area of great importance to Japan as well as the United States. This course offers an introduction (and thus assumes no prior knowledge) to Southeast Asian history from the earliest civilizations, through the colonial conquest, the indigenous political reaction of which Vietnamese Communism and the Vietnam Wars were one expression and the contemporary economic scene. The course seeks to define Southeast Asia's uniqueness as well as its evolving ties to the rest of the world. Midterm, final, and optional paper. Two lectures, one discussion section per week.

This lecture/discussion course will examine central issues and events in the history of the territories that became the United States, and the peoples who lived there, from the late 16th to the middle of the 19th centuries. Among the topics that will be considered are the territorial expansions of Europeans into the Americas; the creation of Anglo-American colonies; the social, political, and cultural orders of British North America; the creation of an independent American republic in the Revolution; and the destruction of that first republic in the War Between the States. The required readings will include both primary and secondary sources, and will be examined in weekly discussion sections. There will be both a midterm and a final examination, and active class participation will be expected in the sections. (Vinovskis)

This is the second half of the basic, introductory survey of American history. It addresses the development of the American nation from the end of the Civil War to the present day. The focal point of the course is the changing nature of the concept of freedom during this period. In this context the course will examine the evolution of the United States from an agrarian nation with little concern for foreign affairs to the world's preeminent power with self- defined global interests. This examination necessarily will focus on the lives of individual citizens, the transformation of the labor force and the workplace, and the role played by race, ethnicity, class, and gender in determining one's place within the greater society. In so doing the course will investigate the era's major reform movements as well as the resons for and reaction to the nation's increased involvement in international affairs.

First-Year Seminar

Credits: (3).

Course Homepage: No Homepage Submitted.

This first-year seminar, open to students interested in Africa and its twentieth century past, is organized around the close reading and discussion of a series of novels by writers based on the African continent. The novels are extraordinary pieces of literature; they provide windows through which to view significant sections of life, community, culture, society, economy, and politics on the continent. And they offer the reader important and unique "moments" of interpretation and theorization of change on the continent across one of the most tumultuous centuries in human experience. While in part directed toward reading audiences outside the African continent, the novels provide an array, and diversity, of "insider" views and evaluations of experience: growing up, changes in the land, political resistance, shifting economies, violence, corruption, crises of identity, the impact of new and pwerful forces on local communities, and the want of improvement and reform. The readings provide opportunities to think and rethink extant concepts through which a,or the, knowledge of Africa and of its past is, has been, and may yet be, organized.

Grades will be based on a combination of:

  1. discussion/participation in class;
  2. the satisfactory completion (with an expectation of increasing facility) of three 2-3 pages essays on reading or readings, the topics of which are to be set by the instructor (and given out early in the term);<
  3. a 3 page proposal for a longer treatment of a them drawn out of several of the novels; and
  4. a final 8 page essay based on the proposal, this final essay due at the close of the last meeting of the term.

The reading for each week should be completed before the seminar in which the novel is discussed is to meet. Essays should be handed in on the dates indicated, at the beginning of the seminar meeting.

Each week, the instructor will provide a brief background "lecture" as introduction to the next week's reading.

Members of the seminar should make appointments with the insturctor to review "the proposal" for a final essay.

Members of the seminar should look around the library for the several atlases and helpful research tools relating to Africa and to these every week or two to get some background, context, and pictures, which should support the readings each week.

This course introduces students to the sweep of English history from Roman times until the Glorious Revolution. The first half of it is devoted to the Middle Ages and focuses on the formation of the English monarchy, the role of the church in politics and culture, and basic social and economic structures. The second half treats the early modern period (c.1450-1700) and concentrates on the growth of the state, the Protestant Reformation, the English Revolution, and the social and economic changes that followed the Black Death and played themselves out during the reigns of the Tudor and Stuart monarchs. No prior knowledge of English history is assumed in this course, and it is intended to serve as the basis for more advanced work in British history and to provide background and comparisons for courses in English literature and European and American history.

This course will examine the American experience of war in this century. Lectures, readings, films, and discussions will focus not only on the military experience itself, but on how America's wars real and imagined have shaped the country's economy, politics, and culture. The course will also examine the processes of transmission and memory: how Americans who did not fight learned about those who did, and what all Americans have remembered or have been taught to remember about the wars of this century. Finally, we will consider how the nation's wartime conduct, at home and on the battlefield, has fit into long-standing social patterns and behavior such as our alleged propensity for violence. In brief, we will be looking at the American experience of war as inclusively as a term will allow.

This course will explore the growth and implications of scientific and technological development from the end of WWII to the present. There will be two lectures and one discussion per week. Students will work in small groups on one problem during the term, e.g., energy, pollution, global warming, health care issues. Each group will hand in a jointly written report at the end of term and present a class report. Three or four books will be assigned reading. Students will be expected to make use of e-mail and conferencing.

This course traces Eastern Christianity from the 4th through the 18th century. A broad survey course aimed at undergraduates of all concentrations, there are no prerequisites; the course focuses on both Church history and theology. It begins with Constantine's conversion and traces the growth of the Church, the rise of monasticism, the creation of the creed (the Councils of Nicea and Chalcedon), and the secession of the Eastern churches (Coptic and Syriac), the role of religious pictures and the iconoclast dispute and relations with the West (Rome) which were frequently strained before the official break in the 11th century. We cover the conversion of the Slavs and the eventual formation of independent Slavic national churches. We treat the fall of the Byzantine and Medieval Slavic states to the Turks and the position of the Orthodox under the Turks. Attention is also given to the Russian Church from the 9th century to the Old Believer schism and Church reforms of Peter the Great. Readings are varied. There is no textbook. A relevant paper of the student's choice, an hour exam, and a final are required.

In 1945 Europe lay in ruins. Entire cities had been leveled by the destructive powers of modern warfare, and the cultural, political, and social norms of the pre-war world had been shattered. What made such violence possible, and how did ordinary men and women experience it? History 318 will explore the ideological, political, economic, social, and cultural forces that both caused and were destroyed by the savagery of the early 20th century. We will not only study the origins and consequences of World Wars I and II, but also the ways in which everyday life was transformed during this turbulent era. We will look at Europe from the inside (by studying relations of class, gender, and nationality), and from the outside (by tracing the ideology and practice of imperialism). Grading will be based on a midterm and a final exam, on active participation in a discussion section, and on two take-home essay assignments.

This course will examine British culture and politics from the death of Queen Victoria through the Second World War, with particular attention to the nature and structure of politics and the state; the First World War and the processes through which the war experience of mass participation and trauma were understood; cultural and political debates in the interwar years; the growth of mass media; gender; the empire and colonial subjects; the Great Depression; British politics during the rise of Nazi and fascist governments in Europe; and the experience of the Blitz and World War II. Students will be asked to think critically about the various means by which national and personal stories are constituted, repressed, re-imagined, and deployed in debates about the meaning and uses of the past. Readings and other course materials will include autobiographies, novels, films, and photographs, and class sessions will include extensive discussion. No previous knowledge of British history will be assumed or required.

This course aims to help students gain a perspective on the contemporary family by studying the development of this important institution in the American past. Particular emphasis will be placed on changing attitudes toward and experiences of sex roles, sexuality, childrearing, work patterns, and relationships between men, women, and children. We will explore race, ethnicity, and class; cover economic developments as well as shifting conceptions of the role of the state; and ask about the impact of these factors on family life. We will want to examine how much the family has changed over time and try to project, on the basis of historical evidence, whither the family is going.

This course is an introduction to the history of American women as a group, as individuals, and as members of different classes, and racial, regional and ethnic communities. Using work, politics, and sexuality as organizing concepts, it focuses particularly on the significance of gender in determining women's experiences from the early seventeenth century to 1870. Special attention is paid to initial and continuing encounters of Native Americans, Euro-Americans, and African-Americans; to evolving constructions of "womanhood" and their significance for different groups of women; to the meaning of religious movements, wars, economic transformations, and demographic shifts for women's individual and collective efforts to determine the course of their own histories.

This course will attempt to answer some of the most vexing historical problems surrounding the Nazi regime's systematic extermination of six million Jews during World War II. For example: What role did Christian hostility to Judaism play in the growth of genocidal racism in Germany? How did German political traditions prepare the way for Nazi authoritarianism? Why did the German people acquiesce in the Nazi program of mass murder? Why did the American and British governments refuse to come to the aid of European Jews? How did European Jews behave in crisis and extremity? Was the Holocaust "unique"? There will be a midterm, a paper of 10 to 15 pages, and a comprehensive final.

A writing intensive seminar aimed at senior History concentrators, this course will explore topics in African cultural history in the decades between the World Wars. The term "Harlem Renaissance" is most often used to refer to the explosion of African American literary, artistic, and musical activity in the 1920s. We will approach the Renaissance through recent historical scholarship but focus most of our attention on primary literary texts by Jean Toomer, Zora Neale Hurston, Langston Hughes, and others, non-fiction by W.E.B. DuBois, Alain Locke, and others, and the music of Bessie Smith, Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, and others. After outlining the cultural and political roots of the 1920s Renaissance, we will study examples from literature, non-fiction, music, and art to retrace historic Renaissance debates about the battle against racism in literature and popular culture, competing visions of black nationalism, the legacies of folk expression and the African cultural inheritance, and the political function of African American art. We will also examine the aftermath of the Renaissance and the widespread radicalization of African American artists and intellectuals on the 1930s.

Requirements will include a total of at least 30 pages of writing (including revisions) and the timely reading of several hundred pages per week. It is expected that students will have done prior related coursework in twentieth-century African American cultural history or literature.

This course examines the interplay between historical events and the ways in which they were remembered, debated and memorialized in popular and politcal culture. Our time period begins with the end of the First World War and concludes with the fall of the Berlin wall and German reunification in 1989/90. The Nazi period and the Holocaust will define many of the crucial questions we explore: how, for example, were politicized memories of the First World War mobilized by the National Socialists, and by their opponents, during the 1920's and early 1930's? What place did the Third Reich and its crimes occupy in the national identities and political cultures of the two Germanies after the Second World War and in newly-reunified Germany since 1990?

Prerequisites: a basic familiarity with the historical events of these periods (History 419-421, History 386, History 318, History 111 or comparable courses.) History concentrators with background and in need of an ECB colloquium have priority in enrollment. Enrollment limited to 15. Three-hour weekly meeting includes two-hour group instruction and discussion, followed by writing workshop.

Course Requirements: include a series of short papers and one longer paper (12-15 pages) at the end of the term (no examinations); occasional oral presentations, regular participation.

This course covers the history of the Mughal Empire in India from 1525 to 1856. It examines the military, economic, social, and cultural underpinnings of this Muslim-ruled state, which formed the background and context for the rise of modern Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan. Attention will be paid to the institutions of rule established by the Great Mughals, but also to the social history of the period, including peasant rebellions, village and urban life, Muslim movements, and Hindi-Muslim relations. The impact of Western trading companies, the rise of the British East India Company, and the supplanting of Mughal rule by British rule will be analyzed. The history of post-Mughal successor states, such as Awadh, which entered into a subsidiary alliance with the British, will also be examined. The course requires a weekly 2-page précis and participation in class discussions.

Section 001.

Instructor(s): Cohen

Prerequisites & Distribution: (3). (SS).

Credits: (3).

Course Homepage: No Homepage Submitted.

This course explores the pre-colonial African past, from the early prehistory of the human to the eve of Europe's second great wave of empire when Africans across most of the continent became the subjects of European colonies. The second European empires (from roughly the 1870s through the 1960s) have had profound influence on Africa, yet important global forces were affecting Africa long before the mid-nineteenth century. Moreover, the shapes that Africa would take under the influence of European empire would be strongly conditioned by the course of change on the continent before 1850 and by the nature of society and culture on the continent stretching back for more than a millennium.

The major objective of this course is to establish a deeper understanding of the forces, institutions, and processes that underlay the experiences of Africans and the African continent before 1850. The post-1850 history of Africa will be taken up by Professor Diouf during the second semester, in History 448.

Over the past five decades, the reconstruction of the African past-from archaeological evidence, from oral testimonies, and from historical linguistics and from other methods and materials-has been one of the most remarkable departures in the historical sciences, taking the professional craft of history beyond its signature: the written document. Of course, the peoples of Africa long enjoyed a rich knowledge of their past and a deep engagement with history, well before the emergence of the professional practice of history on the continent. And a critical factor in the shaping of Africa's futures has been the production and control of histories for and about the continent.

Albeit the breakthroughs in the reconstruction of Africa's past, and albeit the importance of historical knowledge to Africans, Africa is substantially "known" today-by those outside Africa, by the international press, by the aid and development and the human rights communities-through a shallow and relatively presentist understanding, partially based on direct observation, partially based on persistent and pervading myths and fantasies about Africa, myths that have their own significant histories. The course will encourage a more complex understanding of Africa and a sense of African history as a work-in-progress. The course will explore *Africa's earliest history *The histories and fates of pre-colonial empires, kingdoms, and states across the continent *The shapes of African culture and society *The Atlantic slave trade and its impacts on Africa *The rise of Islam in Africa *The relations of Europe and Africa before the second European empires *Basic conditions of life in pre-colonial Africa *African modernities before "modernity" Among the main questions, the recurrent questions: Africa's Past: How has it come to be known, understood, comprehended, explained? Africa's Cultures: The utility of models of continuity and change? Africa's Civilizations: The ethics of autocracy and domination? Africa's Connections to the Wider World: Determined or negotiated? Africa's Economies: The fates of value and equity in extractive economies? Africa's Resources: Whose materials, to what use, to what effect?

The course will be organized around lectures, readings, discussions, the viewing of several films from Africa.

Course requirements:

1. Participation in class discussion. 15%.

2. A critical book review of a monograph from the "recommended list"-three to four pages. 25%.

3. Mid-term exam. 25%.

4. Final exam constructed, in essay form, around the "recurrent questions" above. 35%.

In this course we will explore the history of Japan from the dissolution of a semi-feudal system in the 18th and early 19th centuries to Japan's rise as a world economic power in the latter half of the 20th century. We will address both the major historical themes during these two centuries of radical transformation and the issues at stake in historical interpretation. The course covers: (1) the decline of official power during the Tokugawa era and the rise of a new plebeian public sphere; (2) Japan's coerced entry into the world market; (3) the consolidation of a modern nation-state, industrialization, and the beginnings of Japanese imperialism in Asia; (4) the rise of social protest and mass culture; (5) political reaction and militarism; (6) defeat in the Pacific War and the U.S. Occupation; (7) postwar recovery and the contested emergence of a conservative hegemony; (8) myths and realities of Japan's new affluent "information society." Class sessions will combine lecture, discussion and audio-visual. Assignments: brief critical summaries of readings, discussion panels, in-class midterm, final paper.

The major theme of this course will be "modernization" of Southeast Asia (Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, the Philippines, Siam/Thailand,Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos and Burma) a historical conflict between the societies of the region and the global community of "developed" nations. Political, social, and intellectual history will be studied but, first of all, the course wants to be an introduction to a sensitive and well-informed reading of a broadest variety of historical sources. The emphasis, in the fall semester, will be on the colonial period, 1870-1945. Students, in the next semester, can choose to take a sequel to the course, which will deal with the period of post-colonialism and of independent Southeast Asian states since the Second World War to the present. Individual students' interest in particular region and period will be fully supported.

This one-credit mini-course will meet jointly with a one-month intensive rotation for fourth-year medical students, and these medical students will also be taking a Rackham Interdisciplinary Seminar on the Body entitled "The Body and Its Disciplines" (799.570, sec. 002/ German 379.499, sec. 001/ Comp. Lit. 354.750, sec. 001), taught by Prof. Silke-Maria Weineck. "Narrative, Case Files, and Women's Health" will consider issues of medical practitioners' stories and patients' illness narratives as revealed in diaries and ethnographic, medical, and social work case files. The approach will be historical, anthropological, multicultural, and biomedical. For each of the four weeks, we will consider a different body of doctor stories, illness narratives, and/or medical case files related to a particular theme in women's reproductive health. We will (1) go back in time to at least the 1920s through an Ann Arbor obstetrician's patient notes; (2) go explicitly transcultural by looking at women's health care among non-white, non-Anglo women in this country and/or to a non-Western region of the world; (3) have one session where we read recent social work and medical case files and discuss them with some of the health professionals who were involved; and (4) consider the new kinds of narratives and case files that will emerge as reproductive technologies continue to move in a high-tech direction.

This course is intended for Ph.D. students in LS&A, Nursing, and Public Health, especially those who are enrolled in the Rackham-sponsored seminar on the Body. Upper-level undergraduates may enroll with the permission of Prof. Nancy Hunt (nrhunt@umich.edu).

This course examines the history of Burma, from the earliest times to the present day. It seeks to chronicle the origins of Burmese civilization and to identify elements of continuity and innovation during the long monarchical period, the colonial era, the post-war independence era, and the current period of political turmoil. The course will attempt to identify unique elements of Burma's remarkable Buddhist culture, but at the same time to place Burmese development in a Southeast Asian and Eurasian context.
