The first half of the European history survey course covers a sweeping period of over a millennium. The course is designed to expose students to general outlines and chronology of European history and to encourage critical, skeptical analytical thinking. To anchor our flying coverage of this long and varied time, we will focus on developments in culture (art, architecture, literature), social organization (family, community, gender relations), and in political organization and theory. Readings will include a textbook, primary sources, challenging interpretive essays. Lecture time will be punctuated by small-group discussions, and active participation is strongly encouraged. Slides will frequently accompany lectures.

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.

Required readings may be purchased at Shaman Drum and are on reserve at the UGLi.

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 reasons for and reaction to the nation's increased involvement in international affairs.

This course introduces students to the Caribbean by examining the concept of diaspora a complex experience of dispersal and uneasy belonging that emerged in response to migration, colonialism, and racial exclusion. We particularly focus on two kinds of diasporas, one emerging from the Atlantic slave trade and evolving into a complex, interconnected patchwork of Creole cultures on the islands, the other a great movement of workers and families among and out of the islands in the 20th century. Readings include works of history, fiction, and primary historical documents.

This course is an introduction to the civilizations of India, that is, the region of South Asia consisting of the modern countries of India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, and Sri Lanka.

We will concentrate on five topics through the ages, covering the period from the Harappan Civilizations to the present. These are:

  1. the state in South Asia;
  2. attitudes to the body, male and female;
  3. social hierarchies, especially class and caste;
  4. religions, sects, and belief systems;
  5. the arts and the experience of everyday life.

The course is organized thematically and not chronologically. While dealing with each topic, we will look at at least the following time points in history to maintain a balanced overview of the history: Harappan civilizations; classical India; the Delhi Sultanate; the Mughal empire; the colonial period; and contemporary India.

Requirements for the course will be somewhat unconventional: a quiz on facts; a test in historical analysis; extra-textual presentation; and a problem-solving exercise on contemporary India.

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.

Section 001.

Instructor(s): Mamadou Diouf (mdiouf@umich.edu)

Prerequisites & Distribution: (4). (SS). May not be repeated for credit.

Credits: (4).

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 term, in HISTORY 247.

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. Midterm exam. 25%.
  4. Final exam constructed, in essay form, around the "recurrent questions" above. 35%.

From devastating infectious epidemics to the quiet suffering of malnutrition, health problems have both affected and reflected the evolution of modern society. The course will study four different historical periods, exploring such issues as:

  • the effects of individual habits, environmental conditions, and medical innovation on public health;
  • the role of ethics, economics, and politics in medical decision making;
  • the changing health problems of the disadvantaged, including Native Americans, women, Blacks, immigrants, and workers;
  • the changing meaning of concepts like "health," "disease," "cause," and "cure";
  • the dissemination and impact of medical discoveries; and
  • the changing organization and power of the healing professions.

We will focus on American history, although comparisons will be drawn to other societies. The course is a basic introduction, however, first-year students must obtain permission of the professor to enroll. Classes are taught in lecture format, and will include a variety of audio-visual sources. There will be two essay-style examinations, and frequent short quizzes. This is a challenging and demanding course. Those who miss the first meeting without advance permission will be dropped from the course.

Reading assignments will range from modern histories to poetry and old medical journals. Required Readings:

  • Leavitt and Numbers, Sickness and Health in America
  • Rosenberg, Cholera Years
  • Crosby, Columbian Exchange
  • DeKruif, Microbe Hunters
  • Pernick, The Black Stork
  • Morantz-Sanchez, Sympathy and Science
  • Courspack from Dollar Bill
  • (Warner and Tighe, Major Problems in History of American Medicine under consideration, not yet decided to be announced later.)

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.

Prerequisites & Distribution: (4). (Excl). May not be repeated for credit.

Credits: (4).

Course Homepage: No homepage submitted.

In post-1945 U.S. history, suburbia has emerged as the dominant method of social organization, the primary focus of land-use planning, and the center of political power. Critics have blamed American suburbs for the crisis of the cities, the alienation of youth generations, the explosion of sprawl, and pervasive patterns of racial and class segregation. Defenders have praised the suburbs for the safety of their neighborhoods, the quality of their schools, and the broad expansion of the middle-class American Dream of a detached, single-family home. This course will grapple with the dominant themes and legacies of American suburbia through a focus on popular culture imagery; social and political history; race, class, gender, and generational analysis; and spatial/developmental policy.

  • Did the same forces that produced the sprawling suburbs also create the urban crisis?
  • How does a metropolitan approach to modern American history recast discussions about the rise and fall of the New Deal Order, the power shift from Rustbelt to Sunbelt, the changing ideologies of class and race, the politics of family and community, and the relationship between local and national policy?
  • How can the increasing diversity and dynamism of American suburbs be reconciled with the pervasive stereotypes of architectural blandness and cultural conformity?
  • What does it mean to say that the United States has become a Suburban Nation.

Lecture themes and discussion topics will range from Levittown to Columbine, from the Feminine Mystique to middle-class Black suburbs, from the Silent Majority to the anti-sprawl movement. The course will begin by confronting the dominant discourses of suburbia in American politics and popular culture, and throughout we will focus extensively on films, novels, and other mass media sources as key shapers of suburban identity. Close attention will be paid to the periodic battles over inclusion and exclusion in suburban communities, including political conflicts over school integration, housing desegregation, and taxation. Throughout the term, we will examine the changing meaning of the suburban label, as middle-class bedroom communities have evolved into autonomous horizontal cities no longer dependent on the urban core.

Students are expected to attend lectures and discussion sections, to watch assigned films/documentaries, and to consult the course webpage for the electronic coursepack and graded assignments. The list below contains likely assigned books, but is subject to change.

Required Readings:

  • Kenneth Jackson, Crabgrass Frontier: The Suburbanization of America

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.

In the seventeenth century, the northern provinces of the Netherlands achieved independence after an eighty-year-long struggle with Spain, established a republican government (one of only two in the world), came to dominate world trade, developed the first commerical capitalist economy, became the only European nation to practice religious toleration and fostered the burst of artistic genius that is commemorated in the phrase "the golden age." This course will look at aspects of the Dutch republic during this period of incredible political, economic, religious, and artistic creativity, addressing the problem of why the Dutch seem in retrospect to have been so precociously modern. A great deal of emphasis will be placed on painting and the graphic arts (works by artists such as Rembrandt, de Hooch, Steen, Vermeer, Dou, Brouwer, and van Ostade) and how they related to comtemporary society.

This seminar will focus on the dynamics of the American Presidency in the 1970s, and decisions and decision-making in the Gerald R. Ford Administration. Students will examine the people and the social, economic, and political issues that shaped the Ford Presidency. The "Seventies" was a pivotal decade in American history. Many Ford names are recognizable Cheney, Rumsfeld, O'Neill, Greenspan, and others. And the issues also still echo today energy crisis, tax cuts, a slow economy, the legacy and lessons of the Vietnam War, partisan politics, razor close elections, Executive Branch relations with Congress, Presidential leadership, bringing a nation together, and more.

The seminar will meet as a class for lecture/discussion during the first weeks of the academic term at the Gerald R. Ford Library on North Campus. Studens will then meet individually with the instructor and staff of the Ford Library as they research and write a paper on a topic of their choice utilizing the original document resources of the Ford Library.

Evaluation will be based on discussion, oral presentations to the class, written reports on readings, and the major research paper. Objectives of the course are to explore and gain an understanding of the office of the President and Presidential decision making, to investigate how the White House functions and how it creates the documentary record, and to provide a valuable learning experience of conducting original research on writing a lengthy seminar paper.

This course will examine the collective efforts of African-Americans to overcome racial discrimination and legal segregation over the course of the 20th century. How were Black protest movements organized? Why did they succeed or fail to achieve their goals? What caused them to disintegrate? Specifically, we will compare the role that ideological, strategic, and contextual factors played in the success or failure of movements. We will also examine how Black social movements have made use of and generated African-American cultural practice. Finally, we will discuss how relations of race, class, and gender both within American society and within the African-American community were reflected in these movements.

The course will be conducted as a discussion seminar. Students will also be expected to keep a journal of responses to the course reading and will write research paper based on primary documents.

This course is about the beginnings of Indian civilization, from about 2500 BC when it first appeared in the Indus valley to the start of the Gupta empire in which it reaches its classic form. It is a lecture survey, which will deal with all aspects of Indian civilization in its formative phase. It presumes no prior study of India on the part of any of its participants (except the professor). Both undergraduate and graduate students are welcome. (The subsequent history of classical India and the coming of Islam will be dealt with in HISTORY 455, to be offered next term, but each course is self-contained and you need not elect the other.)

Developed in conjunction with the St. Petersburg Theme Semester, this course will examine the first century of Imperial Russian history, a period riven with the contradictions of enlightened, Westernizing rulers who ruled over an increasingly oppressed population of serfs and conquered peoples. The history of eighteenth century in Russia has been dominated to the exclusion of almost all other subjects by two striking figures: Peter the Great at the beginning, and Catherine the Great at the end. These two powerful rulers attempted to transform Russia from above and left indelible marks of their colorful personalities on the building of their marvelous northern capital and on the development of their country. Recent innovations in historical study have introduced new approaches to this understudied century, so that we now can add to the conventional biographies of the two great leaders with new studies of the society and culture that greeted their innovations, sometimes with enthusiasm and sometimes with suspicion.

In this course, we will combine a variety of approaches, reading monographs, scholarly articles, contemporary memoirs, and literary works of the time to try to understand the complicated dynamics of an era of cultural flowering and enlightenment in a society still characterized by serfdom and a nobility bound in service. We will pay particular attention to the art, architecture, and urban geography of St. Petersburg, the glistening new city built in a northern swamp by order of Peter the Great, transformed into the jewel of the north by the deliberate plan of its succession of monarchs.

We will be able to take advantage of a number of the special events exhibitions, concerts, performances, and lectures coming to campus in connection with the 300th anniversary of the founding of St. Petersburg in 1703. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to enjoy these special events with a background of knowledge of the period.

The course is open to all, but is designed for upper-division undergraduates and for graduate students. The format will be a combination of lecture and discussion, and lectures will frequently be illustrated with slides. There are no prerequisites.

REQUIREMENTS:

  1. Very short weekly papers (approx. 2 paragraphs) responding to questions from the readings.
  2. Attendance at some of the special events scheduled outside of class-time (to be arranged).
  3. midterm exam
  4. 7-8 page paper on a primary source
