HIST 3600 - Women in Early Modern European History, 1400-1800


Explores the social, cultural,political, and economic roles of women in Europe from the 15th- through the 18th- centuries. Students will examine women as monarchs, nobles and peasants; as actresses, musicians, and playwrights; as mothers, wives, and daughters; as Christians, Jews, and Muslims; as scientists and scholars; and as witches, prostitutes,and criminals. Key issues will include women’s political power and participation in politics; sexuality and the body; women’s spiritual and religious roles; and women’s interactions with men. The Early Modern period sets the stage for a changing history of women in Europe, and the class will thus underline the ways in which women’s roles evolved and changed over the course of early modern Europe.
