Lecture and Class Outlines and Assignment Links

Professor Donahue


Mr. Straus

These outlines contain three types of material: (1) facts or bibliography about people or events that we will mention in class (‘kings, and battles, and dates’); (2) documents, or summaries thereof, that we will be studying in class (good for preparing for class); and (3) (but not always) genuine outlines of the lectures. For the classes that have not yet been held, I give here the lecture outlines as they are currently conceived, keyed to dates on which we will have the class.  There are also outlines for the section meetings. Once the class has been held, I will try to post the outlines that I used in class if they are different, fuller, or more reflective of what was actually said in class. The outlines are now complete and up-to-date for the course as it was given this year. Lecture outlines don’t display the same way in different web browsers. These are optimized for Firefox; the spacing will be a little off in Internet Explorer, and the upper-case Roman numeral won’t show. I think I have most of the images that I used the last time I gave the course in the outlines. Some of them are embedded in the outlines; some of them are reached through hyperlinks in the outlines; some of them are in a separate PDF called ‘slides’.

The date of the class for this year’s course is linked to the outline for the class. Under this there are one or more links to the documents in the coursepack assigned for the class and/or to some of the secondary readings listed in the syllabus for the class. The pdfs of the coursepack don’t quite pick up all the fancy formatting that the paper version has, but all the text is there. As we say in the syllabus, focus on the documentary material. It’s more important than the secondary reading. Where two secondary readings are given, e.g., Bellomo and van Caenegem, they are alternatives. I have linked the assigned documents for the whole course, but usually only once, even where the documents are used in more than one class. Selected assigned readings are listed up to the spring break. I’ll try to fill in the others later.
