Instructor: Oliver Scholes
This course covers, broadly, the history of the “west” in “modern” times. It will not be simply a recitation of facts about the past, nor will you be assessed on your ability to recall facts about the past and compress them into a blue book. Rather, we will attempt to come to some understanding about how different people in different times and places have imagined and represented the world around them. You will be assessed on your ability to analyze and make connections between course readings, both in writing and in class discussion, as well as your reflections on your own learning in this course.
