Departmental Seminars

HIS 462:  Seminar in European History:  “Minorities, Protest Movements, and Countercultures in 20th-Century Europe.”  Dr. Huneke (T/R 5:00-6:15)
This seminar will assess the political and cultural “peripheries” of 20th-century European societies.  How have historical actors and historians decided what is “central” and what is “peripheral,” and on what basis?  In what ways have the “central” and “peripheral” been mutually constitutive?  Students will have the opportunity to focus their research on one of the following thematic areas of emphasis:  the African diaspora in Europe; the Jewish diaspora in Europe; the Islamic diaspora in Europe; student activism during the 1960s and its aftermath; Americanization and its discontents in European popular culture.

HIS 477: Seminar in African History: “African and African Diaspora
Identities.” Dr. Yates (W 3:35-6:15)
This seminar will examine the ways in which African and African Diaspora identities have been constructed and reconstructed in the 20th and 21st centuries. Beginning with W.E.B. DuBois and Frantz Fanon, the course will outline the various dynamics of identity through a variety of lenses, including culture, sexuality, social movements, gender, class, place, migration, sociology and philosophy.  Students will have the opportunity to analyze Poetry, Literature, History, Philosophy, and Journalism.
