Class time: 9:30-11:00
This is a course on premodern history from about the year 1 to about 1400, but it is history told with a twist: It describes major events and ideas through the experience of women who lived through these times. Although you may be familiar with some of this history, you will see it in a new way through the lenses of women’s lives and writings.
Arranged chronologically, the course covers a long period of time, beginning in the West with the establishment of the Roman Empire in 27 BCE and ends at the close of the Middle Ages in about 1453 with the dawn of the Renaissance.
The course is presented via DVD lectures by Professor Joyce Salisbury, University of Wisconsin. Two – 30 videos will be shown each class session, with time for discussion during an intermission.
The course will continue uninterrupted through term break (s).
REQUIREMENTS: Curiosity about history.
TUTOR: Jim, a retired research biologist, has been an active participant in U3APP by being a member of the Committee of Management for 3 years, a member of the COVID-19 Working Group and tutor for more than 15 courses covering history, music, language evolution and other disciplines.
