FDR: HU
Credits: 3 credits in Fall or Winter; 4 credits in Spring


Prerequisite: Varies with topic. Selected topic or problem in history. May be repeated for degree credit if the topics are different.

Fall 2021, HIST 195A-01: Topics in History for First-years and Sophomores: Romans and Barbarians (3). This course investigates the world of Late Antiquity (200-800 AD) by looking at the relationship between “Romans” and “barbarians.”  Exploring the transformation between the late Roman empire and the Early Middle Ages, we will interrogate questions of identity and ethnicity to reframe the political, institutional, and cultural changes in this critical period in European history.  Students will examine famous events like the Crisis of the Third Century, the conversion of the Roman empire to Christianity, the “fall of Rome,” the foundation of Islam, and the establishment of the Frankish empire. (HU) Halsted.
