ISP 101 Ways of Knowing: Interdisciplinary Perpectives on the Past

3 hours 

This course takes a broad and interdisciplinary approach to the study of the past.  Students in this class will explore a single historical theme or event, investigating how it came about and how it evolved over time.  They will engage with and draw from multiple voices, texts and disciplines in order to examine how different branches of knowledge respond to and grapple with new ideas and situations.  Topics will vary across sections depending on the expertise of the professor, but may include: social, political and cultural revolutions; war; gender and sexuality; civil rights; criminal justice; technological innovation, or new scientific discoveries.
