HIST 106 Modern Europe to 1815
Society, culture, and politics from the Renaissance through the French Revolution.

HIST 213 WWI Revisted
This course will begin by making sure everyone understands the basics of the conflict that started exactly 100 years ago and became the “Great War.” Then we will explore how the war is being commemorated, or not, in different countries and how various interpretations of the war developed over time. Students’ final projects can be either an essay analyzing methods of commemoration or a research project on the war itself using primary sources. This will allow students who are interested to prepare work that could be presented at the CPC (Central Pennsylvania Consortium’s) WWI conference that will be held in March 2015 at Franklin & Marshall College. (Applications to deliver a paper will be due in December.)

HIST 231 Modern France
