Class Notes

London travel course. Application and $450 deposit due by March 1, see https://rce.csuchico.edu/passport for details. Students will learn the history of Europe from the Renaissance through the Napoleonic Wars by visiting a range of cultural sites and museums in and around London and Yorkshire. The site visits will proceed chronologically, and will thus provide students with a compelling and thought-provoking narrative of European history. For example, we will set the stage for the Renaissance by learning about prehistoric history with visits to Stonehenge and the British Museum, and medieval history with visits to Salisbury Cathedral (Magna Carta), Westminster Abbey, and the Tower of London. We will explore the history of the Renaissance at Hampton Court Palace before heading north to York where we will review medieval history (Wars of the Roses at the Richard III Museum, and anti-Semitism at Clifford?s Tower) before studying the Reformation at parish churches, cathedrals, and monasteries across Yorkshire. The Merchant Adventurer?s Hall in York will be our venue for learning about the new global (capitalist) economy and Castle Howard will be the setting for our reflections on the Scientific Revolution and Enlightenment. Requires additional enrollment in HUMN 300.
