Two New History Class Offered for Fall 2015!!!
History 485, History of American 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.
consider the course as you put the finishing touches on your schedule. If you
have any questions, please e-mail Richard Kimball at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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!
