Instructor: Professor Sonya Lipsett-Rivera

This course offers a thematic exploration of theory based on its application in historical works.  It will be organized around a particular article or chapter and the theoretical work that provided a framework of analysis for it and another piece. The purpose of this seminar is not to be comprehensive but to acquaint students with the ideas that inspire historians and make the use of theory less intimidating.  It should serve as a launching pad for a deeper engagement with theoretical works and the corresponding historical scholarship.
