LACR 210 - Texts & Contexts: Perspectives on the Humanities

Perspectives on the Humanities addresses significant works from the ancient world, the Renaissance, the Enlightenment and Romantic periods, and the present day. The course serves five functions: to help students develop their skills in critical reading and writing; to introduce study of traditionally defined periods in the history of culture; to introduce a thematic approach to Humanities topics; to examine key primary texts from various periods and consider them alongside comparable art works; to explore the possibility that conventional ideas of period studies are open to challenge and reinterpretation.
