Section Information for Spring 2020
This course looks at the histories of individual people in Africa, Europe, and the Americas between 1500 and 1800. The focus is historical and methodological: by examining the lives of individuals from different class and race categories we will get a sense of some of the important issues defining the early modern Atlantic world, including the boundaries between slavery and freedom, the importance of gender in public as well as private life, and the opportunities for and limitations on social mobility across space and time. We will also think about methodology as we explore the genres of biography, autobiography, memoir, personal narrative, and microhistory.
