The course introduces students to social, political, cultural, and economic developments from the American Civil War to the present day.

the others. It pays special attention to how American politics, institutions, and cultural norms emerged from—and produced—a changing role for the United States in its global context. It also interrogates how efforts to define American identity have both provided the terrain for inclusion and been used to justify the exclusion of various people, including racial, ethnic, and immigrant groups, people of different genders and sexual identities, and people of diverse religious and political beliefs. This course fulfills the Historical Studies requirement in the core curriculum.

From Britain to Africa and from Spain to Iran, the Roman Empire seemingly united diverse peoples and cultures. All roads led to Rome, the City - Urbs, a cosmopolitan and overcrowded metropolis. In this course we study written records and material remains from the beginnings of Rome in the eight century BCE to the late Empire in the fourth century of our era. We follow political, social, economic, and cultural changes over time, examining a variety of evidence and voices and keeping abreast of current problematic areas and scholarly debate. The Roman material is supplemented with comparative evidence from non-Roman societies within and bordering the Empire, as we account for the relevance of past experiences to our current issues.

This course, team-taught by a historian and a literary scholar, focuses on the long struggle of African Americans for justice and equality in the U.S. Analyzing literary and historical texts, students in this course will learn about and engage in research on African American history and culture. Utilizing historical, literary, and cultural approaches, this interdisciplinary course will immerse students into an exploration of the African American experience from multiple perspectives using dual disciplinary frameworks. For example, students may study Richard Wright’s NATIVE SON, but would read the text within the historical and cultural framework of the Great Migration, connecting Wright’s text not just to other literary texts, but situating it within an historical and cultural context vital to the novel’s creation and essential for its interpretation. The writing load for this course is a minimum of 15 pages of formal revised writing. This course satisfies the Writing Across the Curriculum Writing Intensive requirement.

Capstone: Rebellion in the Americas This seminar examines the major interpretations of rebellion in the modern history of the Americas. Course readings and student work that culminations in an original research paper will engage in four fundamental questions: How have historical definitions of revolution and rebellion changed over time, and what explains those changes? What were the political, economic, and cultural forces that compelled ordinary people to rebel against their government and/or the status quo? Do key aspects of resistance transcend geographical boundaries as well as conceptual frameworks such as race, ethnicity, gender and class? How, in turn, have rebellions shaped the local and global societies in which they occurred?

This course examines how seemingly impersonal forces are historically associated with personal changes for women and the family across the Americas. We will analyze how women and the family intersected with the economy, politics, and society. A comparative approach allows for consideration of national circumstances and social norms regarding race, ethnicity, and class. Examining the history or women and the family throughout the Americas also highlights similarities and differences within the reciprocal relationship between private lives and public policy. Topics include working women and the family economy, slavery, political rights and protective legislature, social movements, youth culture and immigration. Understanding the history of women and the family helps explain current contentions over women’s roles and modern family structure.

The course deals with archaeological methods, theories and interpretations in discovering, reconstructing, and understanding past societies worldwide. As we address specific thematic units and case studies, we learn how archaeological evidence and interdisciplinary research reveal human responses and adaptations to their environments and climate change. Archaeology generally deals with material remains and is the primary discipline that systematically studies societies and time periods that lack written documents. Historical archaeology combines the methods of archaeology with analysis of written and oral sources. This holistic approach builds our knowledge of the human past, enables critical reappraisal of the interconnection between cultural and environmental change and accounts for the relevance of past experiences to our current issues.

The Enlightenment: The "Age of Reason" in Europe and its Empires During the 18th century Europeans were increasingly confident that they had entered an age of reason, in which rationality and science would bring progress and end superstition and oppression. In this course we will examine key examples of this thinking, including the economic, religious, and political works of influential figures like Adam Smith, Voltaire, and Ben Franklin. But we will also focus on many of the questions that historians are now asking about this process: did religious faith really decline? what roles did women play in this movement? did these ideas lead to political revolutions, and if so did they cause liberty or violence? why was an "age of reason" actually so full of emotion? and why, if this was really a European process, did so much of the Enlightenment take place elsewhere, in American colonies and among Europeans discovering the rest of the globe?

This course will begin by delving into the origins of the Sunni/ Shi’i split in the seventh century. Although the two sects made efforts to distinguish their faiths in the medieval period, the rise of spiritual Islam brought the two sects closer together by the fifteenth century. European colonialism, however, which overtook the Islamic world in the nineteenth century, caused many Muslims to become more conscious of their sectarian identities. Nevertheless, although Shi’ism and Sunnism formed different jurisprudential traditions, they experienced many of the same historical pressures and therefore developed similar solutions to colonialism, westernization, and secularism. Thus, this course asks, to what extent is there a Shi’i-Sunni split and in what ways have modern politics obscured the similarities between the two sects?
