Description
:

Examination of the forces that have shaped the lives of European women since 1600 and analysis of how changes in the structures of power and authority – religious, political, social, familial – affected the choices available to them. Students engage critically with the question of what bringing gender to the forefront of the study of European history has to teach them. Students gain an understanding of many of the underpinnings of American society, which has been deeply affected by European patterns of thought about women and their place in the world.

Assessment
and Goals:

Assessment:  Through student performance on 4-5 short papers and participation in class discussion.

Goals:       To teach students about the various aspects of womenÕs lives in Europe during the modern period and how their experiences and the possibilities they faced were shaped by political, religious, cultural and economic developments.  Students will be introduced to the practical and philosophical issues implicit in studying womenÕs history and will engage in the interpretation of primary sources and the critical assessment of secondary sources.

Rationale for
Changes or
Exceptions
:

THIS COURSE COMPLEMENTS HIST 3704 (WHICH FINISHES IN 1500) AND OFFERS A BROADER CHRONOLOGY THAN 3706 (WHICH FOCUSES ON THE EARLY MODERN PERIOD, 1350-1750) OR 3703 (WHICH IS A COURSE IN 20TH CENTURY EUROPEAN WOMENÕS HISTORY).   IT WILL ALLOW STUDENTS TO SURVEY THE EFFECT OF SOME OF THE MORE SIGNIFICANT EVENTS IN EUROPEAN HISTORY (INCLUDING THE REFORMATION, THE FRENCH REVOLUTION, INDUSTRIALIZATION, AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF MASS POLITICS) ON WOMENÕS LIVES AND TO COMPLETE A SEQUENCE IN EUROPEAN WOMENÕS HISTORY WITH ONE CLASS.  THIS COURSE WILL ALSO HAVE THE ADVANTAGE OF COVERING THE PERIOD 1750-1900, WHICH IS MISSING FROM THE EXISTING OFFERINGS AND REPRESENTS A VERY IMPORTANT PERIOD FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF IDEAS THAT SHAPED WOMENÕS MORE RECENT CLAIMS TO FULL PARTICIPATION AS CITIZENS IN THE WEST.
