This course is an introduction to the history of medieval Europe and an introduction to the discipline of history. In the first unit of the course, students will get an overview of medieval history. We will begin in the late Roman Empire roughly around 600 C. E. . and watch the emergence of three new civilizations — European, Byzantine, and Islamic. We will follow the historical transformations of these three cultures to the threshold of the modern period, c.1450 C.E. Students will learn to narrate the histories of these cultures in regard to politics, economy, demography, religion, cultural and intellectual life, and gender and family. Over the course of the semester, students will collaborate on a group project that narrates the history of Byzantine, European, and Islamic civilizations from their roots in the late Roman Empire to their demise or transformation at the beginning of the early modern period.]
