SEMINAR DESCRIPTION:

HIS472 Seminar in European History: Theories of Rights & Justice in Medieval Europe
Dr. Alison Williams Lewin, TR 3:30-4:45 p.m.

We think of human rights and natural rights as fairly modern concepts, but in fact they originated in post-Roman Europe.  By contrast, ideas of justice and the agencies that deliver it differ significantly from their earlier forms.  This course exploress topics from children’s rights to theories of “the just war” to radical peasant revolts, and enables students to explore a topic of their choosing as their final project. Ethics-Intensive, Writing-Intensive, European Studies, Justice and Ethics in the Law, Medieval, Renaissance, and Reformation Studies.
