OSPCPTWN 10: Climate Change and Political Violence

Policymakers and scholars are increasingly interested in whether climate change could increase the risk of political instability, including violent conflicts within and between countries. In this seminar, we explore such questions as: How could the expected effects of climate change make civil or international conflicts more likely? What evidence is there that environmental factors contribute to political violence, both historically and today? What regions or countries are most at risk from these challenges, and why? In addition to addressing the human and social impacts of climate change, topics include what causes political violence within and between countries and how we can assess the contribution of different risk factors. In addition, methods and data that scholars use to explore the link between climate and conflict.

OSPFLOR 47: Faith, Science, and the Classical Tradition in Renaissance Florence

The Renaissance was a pivotal period in the history of European thought when the Christian religious worldview was challenged by the recovery of classical secular philosophy. In particular, Stephen Greenblatt's Pulitzer-prize-winning The Swerve argues that the rediscovery of Lucretius' On the Nature of Things reoriented European intellectual history toward modern scientific materialism.Readings from Renaissance philosophers and site visits to see the magnificent works of Florentine art will suggest a more complex interaction between religious experiences and secular thought. This course will aim to develop students' capacity for historical criticism, to enhance students' knowledge and appreciation of the philosophy and art of Renaissance Florence, and to illustrate how contemporary social science can be used to deepen our understanding of historical change.
