History Workshop: Modern/Contemporary - HSTY1005

Year - 2020

Parisians at the dawn of the twentieth century re-make art, politics, and sexuality. A hunger strike at a supermax prison in California in 2013 spirals into a coordinated protest against mass incarceration. In this unit you study a moment in history that has a bearing on the world we live in today in a semester-long seminar with an expert in the field. You'll develop skills in assessing evidence and understanding events and issues in context.
