HIST 2838 Humanists and Heretics: Identities of the Early Modern Italian Peninsula (Spring: 3 )
Covering the period from approximately 1400-1800, this course will broadly address the concept of “identity” in the Italian peninsula from a variety of different perspectives. Specific topics, to name a few, will include political divisions of the peninsula, city-states, and civic identity; the social and cultural experience of elites versus non-elites; the Renaissance and different expressions of humanism; and the religious diversity of the peninsula in the context of both the Protestant and Catholic Reformations.
