HIS 331-01 - Making Knowledge in Early Modern Europe (Spring)

4 credits (Spring)
A knowledge explosion took place in Europe between 1450 and 1700. Its powder keg was stocked with newly recovered ancient texts, with stories from Europeans’ encounters with the New World, and with the results of the observation and experimental interrogations of nature. Independent research projects will examine the effects of the media revolution-the development of print culture-which ignited and sustained the blast of this “information age” in Europe and beyond.

Prerequisite: Any 100-level history course and any 200-level European History course.
Instructor: Pollnitz
