Sudharshan D Seneviratne

This course examines the ideological bases and modalities of ordering the past by pre-colonial, colonial and post-colonial societies. We will study how ancient material culture, written and oral traditions, and a range of other symbols of cultural pasts were and are being used in the construction or destruction of histories. We focus especially on issues of heritage ethics and museum presentation, as well as non-parochial knowledge dissemination as a source of conflict resolution and inclusive peace education. Case studies will be drawn from Australasia, South Asia, West Asia, Africa, Nazi Germany, Post-Communist Europe, and North and South America.

Austin P Mason

Why did barbarians invade? Traders trade? Pilgrims travel? Vikings raid? Medieval Europe is sometimes caricatured as a world of small villages and strong traditions that saw little change between the cultural high-water marks of Rome and the Renaissance. In fact, this was a period of dynamic innovation, during which Europeans met many familiar challenges—environmental change, religious and cultural conflict, social and political competition—by traveling or migrating to seek new opportunities. This course will examine mobility and migration in northern Europe, and students will be introduced to diverse methodological approaches to their study by exploring historical and literary sources, archaeological evidence and scientific techniques involving DNA and isotopic analyses.

Held for new first year students
