HISTORY 299P: Mastering Uncertainty: The Power of Archival Thinking (HISTORY 399P)

When confronted with chaos and uncertainty, do you know how to stay calm, ask the right questions, and find the answers? Archival researchers do. Do you realize that less than 1 percent of primary sources have been digitized, and that 99 percent still exist in their original formats in collections, small and large, scattered all across the world? Do you know how to find them and use them? Archival researchers do. Through hands-on exercises in Stanford¿s archives, students learn the fundamentals of archival research. Pursuing their own research interests, students will learn to become self-sufficient, independent researchers capable of navigating uncertainty and producing knowledge--a skill set in demand no matter what their major or post-graduate plans. Instructor permission required.

HISTORY 301D: History Goes Pop! Songwriting the Past (HISTORY 201D)

Historical research doesn't always take the form of a thesis, an article, or a book. Sometimes, research leads to film, museum exhibits, works of art, or... music. In this class, students will collaborate to write, record, and produce original pop music (perhaps even an entire album) based on original research in Stanford's wealth of archives and Special Collections. The thematic focus of the class will be on the global history of civil rights and social justice movements during the modern period. Archives include, but are not limited to, rare materials on the 2017 Women's March, Solidarity (Solidarno¿¿), Tiananmen Square, the NAACP, the United Farm Workers of America, the Black Panthers, the Gay Activists Alliance, Martin Luther King Jr., and more.nnA background in music is NOT required, but openness, supportiveness, and (a little bit of) bravery ARE. nnSpace Limited. Requires permission by instructor (apply at https://forms.gle/1MaYLjugN1bwvB6GA )

HISTORY 302G: Peoples, Armies and Governments of the Second World War (HISTORY 202G)

Clausewitz conceptualized war as always consisting of a trinity of passion, chance, and reason, mirrored, respectively, in the people, army and government. Following Clausewitz, this course examines the peoples, armies, and governments that shaped World War II. Analyzes the ideological, political, diplomatic and economic motivations and constraints of the belligerents and their resulting strategies, military planning and fighting. Explores the new realities of everyday life on the home fronts and the experiences of non-combatants during the war, the final destruction of National Socialist Germany and Imperial Japan, and the emerging conflict between the victors. How the peoples, armies and governments involved perceived their possibilities and choices as a means to understand the origins, events, dynamics and implications of the greatest war in history.
