HIS 1320 - Comparative World History: Gender

Credits: 3
This course provides an introduction to the methodology of history and historical thought, through the comparison of the role of gender in three or four different societies. Societies from at least two different continents are ecompared, and at least one society from the ancient (to 500 CE), medieval/early modern (400-1750), and modern (1600-present) eras are examined. Gender is used as the thematic lens in developing a historical analytical approach in identifying and explaining long-term historical developments over time in the context of the intersection of gender with culture, religion, politics, and economy both within specific societies and in relation to cross-cultural encounters and exchanges over time. Students are introduced to different methodological approaches used by historians to study gender as both a category and an agent of historical change in global history.
