    HIST113 PO - Medieval Spain and the Idea of ‘Convivencia’

    When Offered: Fall 2021.
    Instructor(s): K. Wolf
    Credit: 1

    It is widely appreciated that Christians, Muslims and Jews lived together (that is, experienced “convivencia”) for significant portions of medieval Spanish history and benefited materially and culturally from such proximity. Of late “convivencia” has become the focus of increased attention, as people in the post-9/11 world turn to history for signs of hope that Christians, Muslims and Jews really can get along. In this course we will take a critical and nuanced look at the idea of “convivencia” and how it relates to the historical realities of medieval Spain. Letter grade only.

    HIST124 PO - The United States in the Middle East

    When Offered: One-time only; fall 2018.
    Instructor(s): H. Rezai
    Credit: 1

    For over a century the relationship between the United States and several nations of the Middle East was defined by mutual benefit and positive collaboration, especially in the fields of science, healthcare, and education. Whereas the people of the Middle East immediately recognized European powers as colonial invaders, they viewed America in a very positive light. However, the century-long positive perceptions gave way to a more negative and hostile view of the US in the Middle East since the mid-20th century. To understand this radical shift in the relations between the US and the Middle East (including Pakistan and Afghanistan), we will study and discuss events, ideas, and doctrines that have shaped the interactions between these countries since the mid-19th century. Along the way, we will examine key issues such as America’s earliest cultural and educational engagement in the region, Cold War rivalries, oil, US military intervention in the region since the 1950s and its support of authoritarian governments, Arab Nationalisms, the 1979 Iranian Revolution, and the rise of Islamist Movements. Letter grade only.

    HIST135 PO - European Diasporas in the Americas

    When Offered: Offered alternate years; next offered fall 2021.
    Instructor(s): A. Mayes

Through close readings of key works in historical, sociological, anthropological, and political analyses of whiteness/whitening, settler colonialism/republicanism, racial formation, and critical race theory, this class examines the development of European diasporas in the Americas as products of conquest, settler colonialism, trans-Atlantic slavery, and the Enlightenment; the uses and consequences of whiteness and whitening ideologies; and the political uses of whiteness and its consequences in public policy.
