HISTORY 207: Biography and History (HISTORY 308, JEWISHST 207)

Biography remains among the most popular historical and literary genres, if also perhaps the most vigorously contested. It continues to attract extraordinary talent - some of which will be showcased in this class. Yet, it remains singularly vulnerable because of its focus on individual achievement, its tendency to sideline people of color, and its highlighting of genius. Some of its finest practitioners are among its fiercest critics. Few wrote biography as well as Virginia Woolf, and few loathed the genre quite as lavishly. nIn this course, we'll read biographical literature and criticism of it, we'll discuss the genre with working biographers on the Stanford faculty and elsewhere.

HISTORY 207C: The Global Early Modern (HISTORY 307C)

In what sense can we speak of "globalization" before modernity? What are the characteristics and origins of the economic system we know as "capitalism"? When and why did European economies begin to diverge from those of other Eurasian societies? With these big questions in mind, the primary focus will be on the history of Europe and European empires, but substantial readings deal with other parts of the world, particularly China and the Indian Ocean. HISTORY 307C is a prerequisite for HISTORY 402 (Spring quarter).
