HIST 614 TOPICS IN THE HISTORY OF LATER MEDIEVAL AND EARLY MODERN EUROPE
*3 (0-3s-0)

A1 The Reformation(s), 500 Years On: Secular? Ecclesiastical? Modern? Medieval?

Textbooks, whig historians, and culture-warriors would still like the "Protestant Reformation(s)" to have been the watershed between the putatively 'Catholic', ecclesiastical, authoritarian Middle Ages and a nascent 'Protestant', secular, liberal modernity. The last two decades of research on the Reformations and their consequences as well as the development of a corpus of scholarship re-examining and refuting key aspects of liberal and Weberian secularization theory (esp. since 9/11) suggest that the old Western Civ (Cold War) textbook story of the Reformation as the dawn of secular liberal modernity is not merely wrong, it is fundamentally misleading and has pernicious consequences for contemporary political culture. That whig story fosters and subtends such poisonous paradigms as Huntington's 'Clash of Civilizations' hypothesis, and ahistorical, deluded calls for a "Reformation" of Islam. We will examine both historical and contemporary issues, including: how secular societies redeploy Christian (or other) religious cultures in mutated form so as to be able to claim a break with a reviled past while simultaneously retaining key features of that past; how public and political claims in the developed world about what is progressive, modern, liberal, secular, etc., depend on Othering and Orientalizing both the European past and non-western cultures, effectively equating them with each other so as to fit them into a modernizing, capitalist 'Reformation trajectory'; how the first 'culture wars', the Kulturkampf of the 19th century, fundamentally shaped both academic history and western political culture (as well as the world of Harry Potter!) by portraying 'the Reformation' and 'Protestantism' as the engines of modernity (culminating in the work of Max Weber); and other related topics..

HIST 617 FASHION AND MATERIAL CULTURE: POLITICS, ECONOMIES, SOCIETIES, c. 1600 - 1900
*3 (0-3s-0)
This course explores the practice of fashion as a social, economic, political and cultural phenomenon from a cross-cultural perspective from the 1500s-1800s. We also assess material culture as a source of unique evidence in historical study. The two – fashion and material culture – are inextricably linked. Fashion signals societal change as well as cultural or political tensions; it reveals gendered norms and expectations, while also marking significant economic transformations. Material life and material culture are integral to assessments of fashion and will be a point of study in this course. Taught in conjunction with HIST 405 A1 and HECOL 464.
