  • HIS 320 Renaissance / Reformation (HU, MI) 

    Dr. John Williams, Department of History

    Learn about the Renaissance where it started, in one of the most beautiful cities in the world: Florence! The course covers the period from roughly 1350 to 1610, and it includes discussion of the religious divisions that were brought by the Protestant and Catholic Reformations. But the better part of our time will be spent studying the complex and exciting history of the society, politics, and culture of the Italian Renaissance. As befits a multi-disciplinary approach, we will view famous works of art on a daily basis, including the Duomo, the Uffizi Galleries, Michelangelo’s David, and others.

  • WLT 140 Global Literature in Translation: The European Fairy Tale Tradition (HU, WC)

    Dr. Alexandra Hagen, Department of World Languages and Cultures

    WLT 140 Global Literature in Translation examines fairy tales in European literature from the seventeenth to the twenty-first century. Particular focus will be paid to the tradition of “rewriting” folk tales—the Grimms’ rewriting of Italian and French folk and fairy tales and Disney’s rewriting of the Grimms’ fairy tales. Course will compare French, Italian, German, and American fairy tale traditions and investigate the resurgence of fairy tale motives in Hollywood blockbusters and television.
