LAS 366 • INTELLECTUAL HIST IN THE ATLANTIC WORLDS-W
11:00 AM-12:00 PM
In the early-modern Atlantic ideas circulated along commodities and slaves. Merchants, government officials, missionaries, travelers, and various others mobile populations crisscrossed the Atlantic carrying with them knowledge and ideas in each direction. In this course we'll discuss Puritan, Quaker, and Catholic (Iberian and French) texts, images, and objects that represented colonization as the creation of spiritual plantations. This is a writing-intensive lecture course in which students will turn in weekly reading reports and will take two take-home exams (mid term and final, 5-10 pages each).
