Section 101.

Instructor(s): Rudi Lindner (rpl@umich.edu)

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

Credits: (4;3 in the half-term).

Course Homepage: No Homepage Submitted.

What civilization did our European ancestors create? How did they render it so powerful? And why is it so different from its neighbors? This course, with lectures, slides, cinema, and class discussion, addresses these matters topically. You may expect to read and view a number of original sources (biographies, travel accounts, monumental art, and doodles) in order to study the rise and rivalry of Christianity and Islam; changing notions of the hero from swordsman to scientist; comparative treatments of minorities (Jews) and majorities (women); the relationship between church and state; the management of loyalty and love; shipping, printing, and technological superiority; why Columbus reached Japan and Galileo discovered Neptune; the relation between art and autobiography; and other topics that illustrate European history. There will be one hour examination in addition to the final.

The aim of this course is to provide a comprehensive critical introduction to European society, culture, and politics since the Second World War. Lectures and readings will cover both Eastern and Western Europe, the international arena and the national histories of particular countries, and social and cultural life as well as political developments. The course aims to explore the shaping of the contemporary world and to introduce students to societies and political cultures which are both structurally similar and fundamentally different from their own. Instruction will be via lectures and {\i} ad hoc{i} discussion, evaluation via midterm exam and end-of-term essay. No special background is required; prejudices and preconceptions about European societies are enough.

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 towards 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 seminar explores the phenomena of discovery, exploration, and travel from the Middle Ages to the present through original accounts, art, and cinema that reveal to us the assumptions and emotions of travelers over the centuries. Topics will include, but not be limited to, the Silk Route, the Spanish Main, "scientific" exploration in the South Pacific, the Overland Trail, polar exploration, mountaineering (with special reference to the latest news from Mount Everest), and both the real and fictional exploration of space. Students will write short papers arising from the seminar assignments and/or projects chosen in consultation with the instructor. The bad news is that there is a lot of required reading; the good news is that the authors intended to entertain.

History 392. Topics in Asian and African History.

Instructor(s): S. Pierce

Prerequisites & Distribution: (3). (Excl). May be elected for credit twice.

Credits: (3).

Course Homepage: No Homepage Submitted.

Race, Sex, and Imperialisms in Africa and the Colonial World Many of our most taken-for-granted categories are in fact recent constructions that have their own, frequently surprising, histories. This course will explore the development of race, gender, and sexuality as they have developed across the last five centuries, most specifically as that development has been linked to the history of European colonialism in Africa. Colonial territories have been crucial arenas in which race has come to be understood as a "natural" category that dictates particular kinds of political relationships. As we shall see, policing gender relations and sexuality were two important ways in which race was constructed and negotiated. At the same time, and as a related development, an idea of the natural, respectable, heterosexual family emerged, one in which women took care of domestic concerns while men supported the family through work in the outside world. We will read work by anthropologists, historians, literary critics, and philosophers, examining a variety of different places and times. The course is meant introduce student to non-western history and should also be of interest to students with an interest in gender studies.
