Women in Classical Antiquity (3) Women in ancient Greece and Rome had few rights and freedom. They were legally and culturally considered as inferior to men. But it would be unfair to ignore the extraordinary complexities and ambiguities of women's lives in the ancient Mediterranean. This course sheds light on diverse historical and literary evidence, as well as material and visual culture. Students not only examine what women actually did and did not do, at home, in town and country, in secular and religious spaces, in slave quarters and royal courts, but also how they were perceived by their male contemporaries and what value to society they were believed to have. In so doing, the extent ancient Greece and Rome can be considered as the origins of Western attitudes towards women is evaluated.

American Drug Wars (3) This seminar introduces students to the concept of the war on drugs broadly interpreted, and surveys America's history with mind-altering substances and efforts to control or prohibit the same. America's battle with addiction has both greater longevity and importance than is generally appreciated. Beginning with the role of commodities such as coffee, sugar, tobacco, and alcohol in forging global trade routes and colonial empires, the course examines America's experience with drugs, alcohol, temperance movements, crime, and law enforcement from the early republic into the twentieth century with the birth of the modern drug war. Students are presented with American social, cultural, and political history "through the saloon door," and examine how taboos and attempts at prohibition have been historically contingent, as well as how drug and alcohol use has often been the site of profound political and social conflicts, many with lasting implications.

The Age of the Crusades (3) Over the course of the Middle Ages, Christians, Jews, and Muslims interacted in a variety of ways and in a variety of places. This course traces the historiography related to these cultural, intellectual, commercial, and military interactions but also considers attitudes towards heretical groups within these traditions. Although the focus is on the age of the Crusades, some consideration is given to the formation of attitudes towards religious differences before the High Middle Ages and how historians have understood them.

The Viking World (3) The course of European history was changed forever when the Vikings began to take an interest in their neighbors. What began as a series of small but devastating raids in the late eighth century soon mushroomed into a mass movement of Scandinavians to Ireland, Britain, France, and beyond, forever altering the landscapes of these kingdoms. To their victims they were heathen pirates who killed without regard for age, gender or status. The Vikings also impacted Europe in more positive ways, opening up long-distance trade routes and encouraging urban development, among other things. This course takes a broad view of the Viking world by considering the evidence for the Vikings themselves as well as their impact abroad. Material evidence (i.e., archaeology) and primary sources are used to better understand Viking society and religion, technology, ways of warfare and influence across time and space. Note: Some background in European history is recommended. Meets with HIST-612 001.

Cities and Politics of Memory (3) The traumas of modernity have transformed urban spaces into architectural and commemorative battlegrounds. Revolutions, riots, ethnic cleansing, and war have led power elites to erase poignant edifices and monuments and then "set in stone" the history that suits their own politics of memory. Through weekly readings and discussions, this course introduces students to theories of memory, controversies over modern architecture and planning, and European urban transformations after 1945.

Slavery Beyond the Americas (3) This seminar gives students the opportunity to explore slavery as a social, legal, and economic institution in an African society. While experiences of slavery in the United States are often seen as normative, those of slaves in African societies were markedly different and representative of the institution beyond the plantation economies of the Americas. After an introduction to slavery in West and East African societies through primary and secondary sources, students develop their own research projects on an aspect of slavery and its abolition in the context of European colonization in either of these regions during the modern era.

Throughout the geopolitical standoff, U.S.-Soviet cultural engagements, full of contradictions and distortions, remained powerful. The course explores the role of politicians and cultural ambassadors in shaping Soviet and American cultural perceptions and stereotypes of each other. Topics include the political use of culture, the role of ideology in culture formation and everyday life, the export of cultural images, reflections of the Cold War in culture, and lasting Cold War stereotypes, which affect Russian-American relationships even today. At the center of the course is exploration of cultural diplomacy as an effective tool for establishing relations between two competitors on the international scene.

Recent American History: 1945-1970 (3) The world, and America's role in it, changed dramatically in 1945 with the victory over Germany and Japan, the death of Franklin Roosevelt, the dropping of atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and the early tensions with the Soviet Union that would erupt into a dangerous Cold War. Making extensive use of Hollywood films, contemporary fiction and memoirs, in addition to books by historians and other scholars, this course traces those changes as well as aspects of American life that remained largely unaffected over the next quarter century. Topics include the Cold War at home and abroad; film and society; the nuclear arms race; McCarthyism; the changing role of women; the Korean and Vietnam Wars, the rise of the military-industrial complex; suburbanization and consumerism; the black liberation, women's rights, anti-nuclear, and gay rights movements; the CIA's secret wars; the New Left and 1960s counterculture; the persistence and resurgence of conservatism; and American society, culture, sexuality, media, and politics, broadly construed.
