HIST 275 - Reacting to the Past


Credits: 4
An examination of key historical moments and trends in American history via historical role-playing. Students take on roles in elaborate games set in the past. While students are obliged to adhere to the philosophical and intellectual beliefs of the historical figures they have been assigned, they devise their own persuasive expression of those ideas in papers, speeches, or other public presentations. Our exploration presumes that individuals play a significant role in history; it asserts that broader economic and social forces place constraints on what individuals may do, but that those forces do not determine human events-people do.
