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.

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.

Inner Asia stands on the borders of three great culture areas: China, the Muslim commonwealth, and Eastern Europe. From this area spread cultures and empires whose social, political, and economic organization differed vastly from the great sedentary neighbors. Across the landscape marched the great Silk Routes, linking China with the Mediterranean. This seminar will look at the historical development of the cross-cultural experiences of Inner Asia, not from the perspective of the sedentary, uniformitarian, and male-dominated neighbors, but from horseback: from the viewpoint of such nomad societies as the Mongols and their successors. Class work will come from anthropological narratives, translated epics, travel narratives, and cinema.

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

Credits: (3).

Course Homepage: No Homepage Submitted.

This is a survey of political, social, and cultural history of Ireland from the earliest times to the destruction and close of the Gaelic order at the beginning of the seventeenth century. The course is conducted mainly by lecture in which, complementing the treatment accorded in textbooks, we will endeavor to realize the historical reality of a millennium of Irish Gaelic history, in itself and in relation to the rest of the medieval world. Two relatively brief papers and one extended one, two hour exams, and a final examination. There is no prerequisite for this course, only a willing and competent zeal for learning of a culture much more diverse from contemporary experience than you will readily imagine.

HISTORY 389. War Since the Eighteenth Century.

Section 001.

Instructor(s): David Fitzpatrick

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

Credits: (3).

Course Homepage: No Homepage Submitted.

History 389 surveys the evolution of warfare in the western world from the seventeenth century to the present. Points of emphasis will include the relationship between politics and war and between societies and their military institutions, the influence of changes in political, social, economic, and technological factors upon western methods of warfare, and the impact of the popularization and nationalization of war upon western nations' approach to modern conflicts. Particular attention will be paid to the relationship of the United States military to its nation's society and whether or not there is a distinctive "American Way of War". The conduct of specific wars, campaigns, and battles will be addressed, but they will be employed to illustrate the above themes and will not, in and of themselves, be the focus of the course. Course requirements will include one research paper, a one-hour mid-term examination, and a two-hour final examination.
