This research seminar is for students working on topics from the early modern or modern era that transcend state boundaries. Projects on any world region are welcome. We will spend some time talking about various kinds of 'histories beyond borders,' including transnational, international, comparative, and/or borderlands approaches, and we will work on the craft of writing article-length essays. But most of the semester will be devoted to the production, critique, and refinement of substantial, original essays.
