Course Description for European History and Historians I
European History and Historians I
What is "Western Civilization", why do we teach it, and how do we do so? This is the first of a two-course sequence to prepare students to teach in undergraduate history programs. The course follows the structure of the undergraduate "Core" classes, but provides a much deeper background in the subject areas covered and the ways historians have dealt with them. On a weekly basis we will discuss key historical and historiographic issues from the major periods of western history.
