HIST014 PO - Medieval Europe and the World Outside

When Offered: Fall 2020.
Instructor(s): K.Wolf
Credit: 1

The crusades and the Spanish reconquista opened the door to a deeper Medieval European experience of Asia and Africa and laid the groundwork for the European expansion of the Americas. This course will focus on firsthand accounts of those medieval European soldiers, sailors, chaplains, missionaries and merchants who found themselves in such uncharted territory. We will use these primary sources to reconstruct medieval European perceptions of non-Europeans in an effort to appreciate the formative role that such “imagining” of the other played in the construction of European identity. Letter grade only.
