COURSE DESCRIPTION:
This course is focused on the period between the dawn of the crusading age and the rise of national kingdom in Medieval Europe. For the first ten weeks of this course, students will read monographs, chosen from a list provided by Professor Bachrach, and write book reviews that will form the main basis of in-class discussions. During the final third of the semester, students will meet independently with Professor Bachrach to work on historiographical essays on a topic of their choice, that considers a question or theme connected with the history of high medieval Europe.
