HUM 295-02 - Special Topic: Tolerance and Intolerance: What is Enlightenment Today?

4 credits (Spring)
Contemporary Europe faces ongoing manifestations of intolerance in the form religious extremism, anti-Semitism, xenophobia, and outbreaks of violence against people of different beliefs and cultures. The present moment recalls for many the long history of religious and racial intolerance in Europe from the time of the Reformation to the demands for tolerance issues during the Enlightenment. This course examines the long history of and present of intolerance and its challenges to Enlightenment ideals of tolerance, rational debate, and human rights. This course includes travel over summer break. Students will be required to pay a $400 participation fee (most other required travel expenses will be covered). This fee will be added to the student tuition bill and is due by the first day of classes. If payment of this fee causes you financial concern, please contact Gretchen Zimmermann in the Financial Aid Office to discuss loan options to cover this additional cost for attendance.
