HIST 261 - Between History and Myth 3 s.h.

Interdisciplinary course focusing on various well-known topics or individuals. The forces of myth and reality, fact and fiction, and the real and the imagined have shaped and re-shaped history. As a result, who we are and how we define ourselves is a constantly evolving process. Designed as a reading and discussion seminar, this course uses historical documents and fictionalized history (including popular literature, children's books, theatrical productions, television programs, motion pictures, scholarly texts, primary sources, and artifacts) to examine transformative moments in history. Organized around a common theme based on student demand and faculty interest, this student-centered course offers learners the opportunity to enhance their critical reading, discussion, and analytical skills. Main emphasis will be on determining the accuracy of the history. Topics and instructors change each semester. Pass/Fail Option. Offered Spring only.
Prerequisite(s): 18 s.h. of 100 level coursework.
