This course uses a culture of East Asia (China or Japan) as a focal point for investigating the history of the region. Students will gain a broad‐based historical and cultural understanding of East Asia in its global context, beginning with the origins of this culture, and including its inter‐regional connections and its encounters with the West. In this way, this course addresses the preconception that East Asia existed unchanged until the arrival of Europeans. The theme of this course is “Contact and Change,” which will afford an opportunity to examine two of the principal challenges facing historians: accounting for change and understanding people and societies separated from us by space and time. This course fulfills the Historical Studies and Human Diversity requirements in the core curriculum. Fall semester focuses on Japan; spring semester focuses on China.

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?
