Description
WHY HAVE VIOLENT INTOLERANCE AND CULTURAL EXCHANGE OFTEN OCCURRED SIDE BY SIDE? THIS IS A QUESTION WE FACE TODAY, BUT ONE WITH LONG ROOTS IN HISTORY. IN THIS CLASS, WE WILL ATTEMPT TO ANSWER THIS QUESTION BY LOOKING AT CHRISTIAN, MUSLIM, AND JEWISH COMMUNITIES IN WESTERN EUROPE AND BYZANTIUM. WE WILL EXPLORE SPECIFIC EPISODES IN DEPTH: IN MEDIEVAL SPAIN, FOR EXAMPLE, WE WILL SEE THAT CHRISTIAN RULES THREATED, FOUGHT, AND FOUGHT ALONGSIDE THEIR MUSLIM COUNTERPARTS, WHILE ALSO BORROWING HEAVILY FROM THE CULTURAL ACHIEVEMENTS OF MUSLIM RULERS. IN SPAIN AND BEYOND, WE WILL EXAMINE THE TOLERATION OF MINORITY RELIGIOUS COMMUNITIES IN EUROPE, THE LIMITS OF THESE ACCOMMODATIONS, AND HOW AND WHY RELIGIOUS TOLERATION BROKE DOWN. TO THE EAST, THE CHRISTIANS OF THE BYZANTINE EMPIRE ALSO HAD LONGSTANDING RELATIONSHIPS WITH ITS MUSLIM AND JEWISH NEIGHBORS AND SUBJECTS, AND WE WILL SEE HOW BYZANTIUM'S ROMAN INHERITANCE AND EASTERN MEDITERRANEAN LOCATION LED IT DOWN A PATH DISTINCT FROM WESTERN EUROPE'S. ALONG THE WAY, WE WILL EXPLORE THE IMPLICATIONS OF THE CONSTANT SHARING OF TEXTS, IDEAS, FOOD, AND LUXURIES, AND THUS EXPLORE THE COMPLEX, DYNAMIC INTERACTIONS BETWEEN POWER, KNOWLEDGE, AND IDENTITY IN WESTERN EUROPE AND BYZANTIUM. THIS COURSE DOES NOT PRESUPPOSE ANY BACKGROUND KNOWLEDGE OF MEDIEVAL OR BYZANTINE HISTORY OR THE COMMAND OF ANY LANGUAGE OTHER THAN ENGLISH, AND STUDENTS WILL BE INTRODUCED TO RELEVANT MATERIAL AS THE COURSE PROGRESSES.

Description
This seminar concentrates on the ways that various peoples in the world make their history by means other than relying on written texts alone. Over the course of the semester, we therefore may be examining such different public events and civic rituals as parades, political and religious processions, local historical pageants, carnivals, historic preservation, museums, military reenactments, and history theme parks. The emphasis in each of these forms, places, and semiotic processes will be on their identity and function as key performances that transform consciousness, shift individuals alternately into both actors and spectators, reframe the everyday as the metaphysical, and intensify the status of cultural values in the histories they present to view. Course requirements: a seminar paper, the topic of which you will discuss with me no later than week five of the course; and a working annotated bibliography and statement of your paper's main thesis. I will say more about these assignments as they approach.

Description
In this course, we will work both chronologically and thematically to examine laws, constitutional provisions, and local and federal court decisions that established, regulated, and perpetuated slavery in the American colonies and states. We will concern ourselves both with change over time in the construction and application of the law, and the persistence of the desire to control and sublimate enslaved people. Our work will include engagement with secondary sources as well as immersion in the actual legal documents. Students will spend some time working with Mississippi murder cases from the 19th century. They will decipher and transcribe handwritten trial transcripts, and will historicize and analyze the cases with attention to procedural due process as well as what the testimony can tell us about the social history of the counties in which the murders occurred. The course will end with an examination of Black Codes that southern states enacted when slavery ended.

Description
This course will focus on wars of conquest in the medieval period. The code of chivalry demanded that knights not only display great prowess in battle, but also adhere to Christian virtue. How did these square in practice? What constitutes acceptable violence and military intervention? We will seek to understand the medieval mentality of warfare in order to think about the place of war in society, how war was justified, why war was fought, and how it was fought. War, however, cannot be separated from its goals. We will thus go beyond the battlefield to look at how conquest of territories was cemented with the establishment and enforcement of a new order. Themes will include the rise of knighthood, ideas of just war, crusade, laws of war, territorial control and colonization. The course will also include two fabulous field trips to visit Penn’s manuscript collection and the arms and armor collection at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

Description
Students in this seminar will choose their own research topic in the history of feminism. With guidance and support each person will produce a twenty-page paper based on intensive work with primary sources. Readings will range across Latin America, the Caribbean, and the United States. We’ll take a long view, beginning in the sixteenth century, and use an expansive frame. Our purpose will not be to decide who was or wasn’t ‘a feminist’ but instead to try to understand actors within their contexts. Readings include scholarship on Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz, Sojourner Truth, the struggle for voting rights across national lines, opposition to dictatorship, and organizing against racism and homophobia. *For History Majors and Minors: Geographic requirement fulfilled by this seminar is dependent on research paper topic.

Description
From Jack Sparrow to Captain Morgan, pirates are a celebrated part of American popular culture. But, before Hollywood romanticized peg legs, eye patches, and rum, early modern mariners lived short and often brutal lives struggling against the changing crosswinds of prevailing European power structures. Despite popular conceptions of pirates, defining who constituted a pirate and what acts could be considered piratical was complicated and shifted over time. This course uses piracy as a lens onto the construction of power, the law, and the early modern state from 1450 through 1800. We will explore the concept of piracy as both a complex social function and as a political statement among Europeans, Africans, and Native Americans. Our readings will address topics such as the creation of legal and illegal maritime activity, piracy and the development of international law, the challenges posed by piracy to gender norms, the use of race as a method of inclusion and exclusion among pirate crews, and how public memory of piracy shapes current debates about global economics.

Description
This seminar explores World War II-era Europe through the lens of evolving gender norms and relations. This turbulent period in European history magnified the so-called "gender troubles" that emerged in the wake of the First World War. From the question of equality between the sexes to the liberalization of sexual mores and divergence from the proscribed roles of men and women, gender had a profound impact on the prewar, wartime, and immediate postwar European landscape. Drawing on primary and secondary sources, we will consider the following questions: How did gender and violence shape the course of World War II and the immediate postwar from Britain to the Soviet Union? How can gender and sexuality help us to understand militarization, violence, and war? How did war and occupation impact relations between and among men and women on the home- and war fronts? We will complicate these questions by probing topics such as women's support for war, masculinity in combat, everyday racial discrimination, eugenics, sexual violence and genocide and the ways in which they infiltradted the every aspect of Europeans' public and private lives. Finally, we will discuss scholarly debates and historiographies on gender during World War II that have emerged since the early 1970s.
