Crowds in Pre-Modern Europe, 1300-1815
0.50 Credits

This course will use incidents of popular violence and protest to open a window onto the lives of ordinary Europeans during the period 1300-1815. Through lectures as well as the close reading, analysis and discussion of key studies, students will gain important insights into the aspirations, motivations and experiences of people who otherwise left few traces in the historical record. By examining the conditions and contexts surrounding moments of popular turmoil, they will also understand how these incidents were connected to wider social, economic, political and cultural processes. {P} {S}
