7. HIST 164: Social and Cultural History: European VT

This is a new course

Contact:Frank Warren
Abstract:This course will explore social groups and their institutions, and culture in
the broad sense of how people lived, thought, their beliefs and values. It
will emphasize the interaction of classes, ethnic, and religious groups within
a particular society or societies. Attention will be paid to differences
between social history and other kinds of history. In social and cultural
history, the student does not concentrate on the elites, but, rather, focuses
on the people--the assembly, the army, the congregation, the social activities,
and social movements arising from the people. The course will explore what
life was like for these groups in their period in the past and how the
knowledge of their experiences inform the inquiry into broad issues, such as
social inequality, the construction of nations and citizens, ongoing struggles
over rights, and the formation of personal and group identities. The course
will also explore collective values and expectations of certain historical
populations and how these values and expectations changed over time.
