HISTORY 205B: History of Fear (HISTORY 305B)

Themes include: epidemic prevention, xenophobia, dietary fears, weather phobias, concepts of anxiety, the place of fear in political theory, and political and economic uses of fear. A final project will require students to identify and explore the history of a particular fear.
