HIST 7307 Colloquium: Spaces and Places in History (Fall: 3 )
This seminar focuses on one large question: how have people historically given meaning to seemingly random physical spaces? In other words, how have they turned physical spaces into familiar places with purpose and function. As we examine how people visualized, built, used, and narrated places, students will be exposed not only to the various theories of space but also to the different sub-fields related to the study of space ranging from geography, to anthropology, to architecture, to urban history and topography, to literary studies, studies of religious ritual and public performance.
