Additional Course Details: 

The Silk Road, often characterized as the world’s first great superhighway, linked China and Japan to the Mediterranean World across Central Asia from ancient times, via caravans and bazaars, to modern periods via new transportation and communication networks. As much of an idea as a reality, its role in world history is unique and complex.  The peoples along the way not only traded luxury goods, but also ideas, religions, art, culinary and musical traditions. Through lectures, reading and films, we will explore the trade links between East and West, and the material traded along the way.   Primary-source literature will help us understand the great ideas and movements of the times-Buddhism, Islam, Christian crusading and Mongol expansion. Students may choose final topics that draw on the "old" silk road or the "new" silk road.

Humans VS Nature

Medicine, Science, and the Environment in Modern War

War is usually seen as a human vs human contest, but armed conflicts are more than battles, and even more than rationing, speeches, propaganda, and memorials. War is also a struggle between people and nature as humans work to adapt, conquer, or combat nature to fight war successfully. Sometimes there are benefits that last beyond the war, such as vaccines or weather forecasting. Sometimes there are costs that linger, such as radiation and scarred landscapes. How and why do humans incorporate, conquer, ignore, or abuse nature as they fight wars? By studying examples from the fields of medicine, science, and the environment around the world on homefronts and battlefronts, we will see major conflicts of the twentieth century as struggles that involves humans and nature, not just people themselves.

Additional Course Details: 

What are “human rights”?  This course explores the development of international law and human rights from the late 1700s to the present, examining how the meaning of  “human rights” has shifted over time.  While the course is anchored in the United States, it will analyze broader global debates over “human rights” that were sparked by slavery, imperial conquest, migration, genocide, the law of warfare, the creation and disappearance of states, gender violence,  and mass expulsions.  Who defined human rights and what mechanisms were developed to address abuses?  The course takes both a “bottom up” and a “top down” approach.  It pays close attention to how individuals and groups--the victims of abuses--shaped international law and human rights.  It also examines the responses of both governmental (the State Department, the United Nations, the World Court) and non-governmental organizations (e.g. Amnesty International) in negotiating treaties, holding trials and hearings, investigating and processing claims, and creating new international standards and conventions on human rights.
