56 606 501 01 32194 The Bible as Literature(Special MALS class) WALL Tues 6:00 – 8:40 pm
          This course explores the rich histories, stories, and religious, moral, and cultural worlds of the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament) and New Testament. These often controversial texts have profoundly influenced worldwide culture and thought for thousands of years, and they continue to present unique challenges for today. We discuss who wrote the Bible, the historical context in which it was written and made into a single book, different ways to approach reading it, and core Biblical themes like God, creation, covenant, prophesy, love, and salvation. Students will leave the course with an enriched understanding of what one theologian has called “the strange world of the Bible” and critical tools for reading and interpreting it in relation to their own lives and society.

(cross-listed with grad History) 
LEES Mon 5:00-7:40pm

This course focuses on cultural and intellectual history between about 1800 and 1914, when there was a series of great debates in connection with industrialization, urbanization, and other aspects of the modernization of European and American society.  Much of the reading consists of primary writings by social thinkers, political philosophers, novelists, and other authors (among them, Charles Dickens, Karl Marx, and Jane Addams) about themes such as coping with urban poverty and other urban ills, the relations between individual and group rights, and the proper roles of women and artists. Such topics also appear in books by historians, which complement the primary writings.  Most of the primary texts originated in Europe, but some of  them and several of the secondary sources pertain to the American scene, and a comparative perspective will be maintained throughout the semester.
