The Early Modern European City
HIST 370
Fall 2007 not offered
Crosslisting: COL 240, FRST 229

This seminar is an introduction to historical research aimed at producing a research paper (about 25 pages) on some aspect of the life of city dwellers in 16th- and 17th-century Europe. The common readings will focus on Paris, Rome, and London, but students may choose topics set in other European cities as well. The course briefly surveys the history of the early modern city and then focuses on the kinds of questions social and cultural historians ask and the varieties of evidence - literary and visual as well as documentary - that they use. Prior work on the period is helpful but not essential.
