Do animals have histories? Animals have created few if any written sources. Nevertheless, relationships between humans and animals have changed dramatically from the ancient past to the present day. Humans have shaped animal lives to serve many purposes; simultaneously, animals have served as agents of change in human history. Drawing on environmental, economic, social, and cultural history, this course will focus on the history of animals as pests, pets, producers, and products.

The Athenian Empire

Athens was by far the most powerful city-state in the ancient Greek world, so much so that an enemy said “Athens alone can stand against all the rest of us combined.” How did the Athenian polis and its people, the demos, rise to such dominance by land and sea that they controlled the majority of Greek civilization, defeated the Persian Empire, and wielded an unprecedented amount of military and economic power in the Eastern Mediterranean? This class will explore the demographic, economic, military, and political factors that led to the rise and fall of the Athenian empire. The archaic origins of Athenian colonization, the role of tyrants, and the rise of democratic imperialism prior to and after the Persian wars will be discussed in depth. The devolution of the free Delian League into Athenian Empire will be studied through inscriptions, followed by the eventual Greek resistance that culminated in the  Peloponnesian War with Sparta, as well as the revival of Athenian hegemony in the fourth-century free Second Athenian League.

The purpose of this course is to provide students with an opportunity to gain an in-depth knowledge of aspects of early medieval European history (c. 450AD-c.1100 AD), to gain practice in writing book reviews, in discussing books, and finally in writing historiographical essays. For the first, and longer part of the course, each student will read a monograph of the student's choice, write a book review, and share this book review with the class. For each class session during the first, and longer, part of the semester students will read the reviews of fellow students, and class discussion will focus on the selected book reviews completed for that week. Each student presenting that week will give a five-minute presentation, and the other students will come with prepared questions about the books of each of the other students in the class. During the second, and shorter, part of the semester students will work on writing a historiographical essay, the topic of which they have chosen in consultation with Professor Bachrach, who will meet individually with students to discuss the historiographical essays.

Additional Course Details: 

The history of slavery is a history of gender.  Children of enslaved mothers inherited their mother's slave status.  In a world where social class and wealth was typically inherited through the father, the architects of slavery decided to turn everything on its head.  Why? In this class, we will interrogate the intersection of sex, slavery and gender in the Americas. We will explore how race itself was constructed through the gendered dynamics of slavery.  We will also examine traumatic histories of sexual violence alongside examples of empowerment and resistance.
