Description

The course covers the period when the first true 'Europe' was born. It covers the disintegration of the Roman Empire in the western Mediterranean, and the development of successor states in northwestern Europe, like the 'barbarian' monarchies, and the multiethnic empires of Charlemagne and the Ottonians up to 1000. Main themes are the development of new kinds of community among European people (Christian monasticism, feudalism, ethnic solidarity), new economic systems, and relations with the earliest Islamic states and with the Byzantine empire.

Course Requirements:

Requirements are a mid-term and a final exam, and two 4-page essays with flexible deadlines. Weekly readings amount to about 75 pages (all readings are on reserve in Shapiro library). Take-home essay exam component, plus timed "in-class" component.

Class Format:

Lectures are remote and synchronous. Enrolled students are expected to be available remotely during scheduled class times. Course is open to remote-only students.
