Each seminar examines a different subject or problem. A quarterly list of the seminars and their instructors is available in the Department of History undergraduate advising office.
This course will consist of two parts. The first will be a series of discussions around assigned readings dealing with a comparative approach to the study of slavery and the types of information which may be extracted from some sources. The second part of the course will involve peer evaluations of student papers.
