Selected Topics in History; The Politics of the Apocalypse: Imagining the World's End in Modern Times
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg, P-F, Aud
This course will explore apocalyptic concerns from ancient times through the present COVID-19 pandemic, focusing on three domains: religion, politics, and technology. The course will also challenge students to see history itself as a bone of contention, a subject of interpretation, rather than a fixed story of progress toward a predetermined end.
