CLASSICS 240: Historiography (HISTORY 304M)

For History and Classics MA and coterm students. This course explores how historians have explored the past, and the strengths and limits of the methods they have employed. Beginning with a survey of non-western historiography, we then investigate the modern formulation of the historical discipline and its continuing evolution. What is the basis of our claims to know the past, and how can we better sift and gauge these claims? How can we better understand the historian's changing role in a changing society?

HISTORY 240: The History of Evolution (HISTORY 340)

This course examines the history of evolutionary biology from its emergence around the middle of the eighteenth century. We will consider the continual engagement of evolutionary theories of life with a larger, transforming context: philosophical, political, social, economic, institutional, aesthetic, artistic, literary. Our goal will be to achieve a historical rich and nuanced understanding of how evolutionary thinking about life has developed to its current form.
