HIS 295-05 - Special Topic: Violence Past and Present

1 credits (spring)
This short course invites students to consider the utility of studying historical ideas and practices relating to conflict, violence, and peace, particularly for those interested in these themes as they pertain  to the present. Students will explore this question via a consideration of the medieval European past, as well as the way that the past relates to and is received and deployed by the present. Over the course of this class, students will participate in weekly discussions, write two written responses to weekly readings, and write a short final paper in which they will lay out their answer to the course’s driving question.

Prerequisite: HIS 100  or second-year standing.
Note: Meets February 6 to March 13. Short-course deadlines apply.
Instructor: Palmer
