HISTORY (W18)240C  GENDER, CAPITAL, AND THE GLOBALTINSMAN, H.
This class explores transnational studies of gender and capital as methodologies for world history. It surveys key feminist literatures on empire, commodities, and labor that bridge area studies fields and contribute to historical understandings of global dynamics.  Required assignments include three short papers and rotating in-class presentations.  Proposed readings are listed below but are subject to change.
HISTORY (W18)260A  17TH-18TH C USBLOCK, S.
Each week, we will read and analyze a group of articles that address an issue related to the intersections of race, sexuality, and colonialism in North America from c. 1500-1800. Topics will include sexuality, race-based slavery, settler colonialism, and students will also have input into several weeks of reading topic choices.  Written work will include brief analytic summaries of each week's readings that will be a useful basis for oral exam preparation, and a possible extra assignment related to each student's particular interests and needs.
HISTORY (W18)273  RES METH CHINA HISTGUO, Q.
This seminar is designed to introduce graduate students to some of the major genres of primary sources for research in late imperial and twentieth-century Chinese history.  Reading material includes Qing documents, local gazetteers, short biographies, diaries, short stories, journal articles, newspaper articles, speeches, scholarly prose, and field reports.  Each week will focus on one or two texts, representing the above-mentioned genres.  Most of these documents are written in classical Chinese; many of them are not punctuated.  The course should give the seminar members some sense of the pitfalls and pleasures of working with Chinese historical documents.  Typicality and brevity are the guiding principles for the selection of these texts.  The main purpose of the seminar is to provide advanced language training for graduate students.  It is expected that through studying these typical texts, the seminar members will receive some preparation in dealing with similar sources in their future research.
