New 300-level Classes for Fall 2017!
The schedule for 300-Level Fall 2017 classes is here! While every class offered by the History Department is interesting and engaging, a handful of our Fall courses are especially notable.
This is the last time Elliot Lefkovitz’s class “Holocaust and 20th Century Genocide” will be offered. Students who are interested in history of violence, world history, history of war, and modern politics should seriously consider enrolling!
The Department also welcomes graduate students Kai Parker and Ashley Finigan and recent grad Emily Lord Fransee from the University of Chicago as instructors this year! Parker will teach Introduction to African-American History, while Fransee and Finigan will teach two brand-new “Topics” courses, Gender and Sexuality in Modern Africa and Topics in American History: Movements Soundtracks. Finally, students looking to learn new skills should think about enrolling in Dr. Elizabeth Hopwood’s Digital History course “The History of Food,” which is also cross-listed with the Center for Digital Humanities and Textual Studies.
For more information on these courses and others, refer to the table below and keep an eye out on the Department’s social media feeds. We hope to see YOU in a History class next year!
