HIST 5506 Making History Public: Jesuits on Race and Religion (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

Students will work together to produce an exhibition to document some of the successes, failures, and misunderstandings of Jesuit discourse on the intrinsic relationship between race and religion. Using textual, documentary, visual, and other resources in Burns Library and elsewhere, students will identify themes in Jesuit relations with various religious, ethnic, and social groups, and the sources that illustrate those themes. Students will select the items to be exhibited, prepare explanatory materials, and consider how best to display the results of their research. The exhibition will be displayed in the public spaces of the History Department in Stokes Hall.
