Two New History Class Offered for Fall 2015!!! 

 History 485, History of American Masculinity

            Masculinity and manhood are powerful and important ideas in American history. What does it mean to be a man in America? How and why has the meaning and significance of masculinity changed over time? How does masculinity shape personal and racial identity? What is masculinity’s importance to interpersonal relationships and understanding of family? To violence, war, military service? To citizenship and foreign policy? We will explore these questions and more as we study American history from a gendered perspective.

            Please consider the course as you put the finishing touches on your schedule. If you have any questions, please e-mail Richard Kimball at

 History 348, Modern Southeast Asia 

         From the spice wars of the 17th century to the tragic conflict in Vietnam, Southeast Asia in modern times has had more than its fair share of the spotlight on the global stage. Standing at the maritime crossroads between China and India, the region has played host to various overlords, migrations, religions, and competing political ideas. Major themes of the course will include the Chinese diaspora, the entrenchment of European colonization, the rise of nationalism, and the recent search for a regional identity. We will read two significant works of Southeast Asian literature in translation: the famous novel Noli Me Tangere written by the national hero of the Philippines José Rizal, and an invaluable first-person Vietnamese account of one of the major battles of the Vietnam War. Join us as we explore the fascinating history of this diverse and dynamic region from 1500 to the present.

This new class by Professor Ian Lowman has never before been taught here at BYU, but will be new this Fall Semester 2015. Space is still available. If you are interested, please go online and enroll. Thank you!​
