Brand new courses coming for 2012-13!
24 June 2011
We are making some changes to the line up of our core course list for the next academic year with some exciting new additions.
A new course in Global History will be added as part of our core offering.
Science and Global History
This course studies the history of medieval Islamic and western Christian science from a comparative perspective and focuses on the transfer of knowledge from the ancient Greek world to the Arabic and then to the Latin West from the ninth to the fifteenth centuries. Approaching the subject thematically, we will consider the following fields of scientific knowledge: geography, cosmology, astrology, technology, medicine and their connections with religion, broadly construed. In the process, we will examine the underlying political, social, cultural, institutional and intellectual structures of these societies as well as the intercultural interactions
We also have new courses available as options:
Sociology of Science and Technology
Investigating Contemporary Science
More details coming very soon!
