Section Information for Spring 2011

Although humans live in their historical present, they often have idealized the past, their present, and even the future. We create utopias, mythic places that reveal something about our nature and how we would like to view the world. Narnia, Middle Earth, and the world of Harry Potter are more recent examples of this. Let’s follow the thread of utopias throughout Western Civilization from ancient times to the present while viewing how people lived their real lives, and mused about their utopias.

Satisfies the general education requirement in Western civilization/world history.
