History 275B is the foundational course in the history of early modern Europe from roughly 1400 to 1800, or from the Renaissance to the French Revolution. Its multiple purposes include the following: to examine the major themes, trajectories, and methods of the discipline as they have evolved since the nineteenth century; to read and analyze some of the major classics and current texts in the fields; and to develop the skills of historical criticism, writing, and collaborative work. The course is open to majors and minors in early modern Europe and to graduate students in other fields of history and other disciplines as space allows.
