HIST 123
Spring 2008 not offered
Crosslisting: AMST 319

This seminar offers an alternative portrait of early New England, from the settlement of Massachusetts Bay in 1629 to the Deerfield Massacre of 1704. The course will explore popular myths about New England's first settlers as stern prudes dressed in black and white. Among the topics to be explored: art and architecture, captivity, crime, environmental history, family life, Indian-white relations, religion, sex, and witchcraft. There will be at least one film screening and two field trips - one to the Yale University Art Gallery and a second to the Mashantuckett Pequot Museum.
