Summer 2015 – Medieval Europe and the Mediterranean World
Has “Game of Thrones” made you wonder what really went on during the Middle Ages? Find out this summer. HIST 362 examines the cultural, religious, economic and political changes that shaped Medieval Europe and the Mediterranean region a thousand years ago. It was a world of titled nobility, armored knights, feudal peasants, and powerful clergy. But you’ll also consider how women, Jews, Muslims and foreigners fit into a changing world ruled and defined, for the most part, by Christian men. This four week hybrid course meets in-person on Wednesdays at UMBC’s Shady Grove campus in Rockville. It fulfills the general education (GEP) requirement in both Culture and Social Sciences.
