Course Description

In this seminar, which is the capstone experience for History majors, advanced undergraduate students will conduct independent and original research projects focusing on the history of the body in European history. Students will research and write 30-35 page seminar papers under the professor’s supervision; in these papers, students will be expected to develop and defend their own arguments and interpretations and will analyze both primary sources and historiography. The history of the body is a timely topic that intersects with the histories of politics, religion, empire, sex, medicine, crime, and more.
