Paris: Civilization & Culture
03.00
Books
Paris: Civilization and Culture (3) Offered through the AU Abroad program in Paris, this course examines how French civilization and culture developed due to the powerful centrifuge called Paris. More than any other city, the urban landscape of the French capital is rich in a history that still informs contemporary social issues and debates about the country's national identity. Through successive generations, Paris has been a provincial backwater of the Roman Empire, the capital of Europe's greatest feudal dynasty, the 'capital of modernity,' an anarchist commune, and the heart of an empire that stretched across the globe. In this course students are given the historical information and critical skills necessary to grasp the complex world historical center that is the city of Paris. The readings are selected from both historical documents and works by specialists in French political, urban, literary, and social history, and the course includes many visits to sites in Paris, as students learn to "read" architectural structures and to use the city as a rich primary source for historical analysis.

The Japanese Empire: 1895-1945 (3) This is an introductory course on the rise and fall of the Japanese Empire. The focus is on the acquisition, development, ideology, dismantlement, and legacy of the empire itself rather than those of the home islands. The course begins with the Tokugawa and Meiji response to the unequal treaties imposed by the West, then turns to the integration of non-Japanese borderlands (Hokkaido, Okinawa) and the acquisition of formal (Taiwan, Korea, Karafuto) and informal (Manchuria, Nanyo) colonies. Then the course focuses on the expansion of the wartime empire (Southeast Asia, southern China). The course concludes by examining wartime atrocities, the American occupation, repatriation of overseas Japanese, and the legacy of the empire in postwar Asian politics.

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-612 002.

U.S.-Soviet Engagements and the Cultural Cold War: 1917-1991 (3) This course discusses the cultural aspect of the Cold War defined by intellectual exchanges, exhibitions, jazz, rock music, and films. 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. Readings include recent academic studies about the Cold War, biographies, autobiographies, and a spy novel. Meets with HIST-645 001.

FDR, Jews, and the Holocaust (3) This course examines one of the most controversial historical issues of our time. For some scholars, President Franklin Roosevelt, the preeminent world leader of the time, stood by while the Nazis slaughtered Jews. For others Roosevelt was a hero who saved as many Jews as possible. The course explores these issues in the context of FDR's biography, the circumstances of the time, and the comparative history of how American presidents have responded to other episodes of genocide. Note: Some background in U.S. history is recommended. Meets with HIST-649 002.

Race and Politics in America since 1945 (3) This research seminar focuses on the struggle of African Americans after the Second World War to achieve voting rights and gain formal, elected, political power at all levels of government. It also explores the question of how minority groups gain and hold on to political power. The outcome of the 2008 presidential race and recent legal challenges to the Voting Rights Act make the history of African American voting and representation more salient than ever. The texts include works by political scientists, historians, and journalists, as well as primary documents and political memoirs. Students write an original research paper based on primary sources and are encouraged to explore the political history of African Americans in their home states and communities.
