InstructorNoel Chevalier
Time1430 - 1520
DaysMWF

Wooden legs, parrots, swords, the Jolly Roger... our image of pirates, as fixed by popular narratives such as Treasure Island & the Pirates of the Caribbean is consistently recognisable, because it derives from a specific period in history: the “Golden Age of Piracy” (1715-1730). The real world of the pirates also had social and political dimensions that Hollywood always leaves out. They were an important force in the Transatlantic world of the 18th century, and influenced global events far more than one would expect from rogues, outlaws, and criminals. We will examine some familiar and unfamiliar fictional representations of pirates, along with historical documents and contemporary accounts. We’ll consider the intersection of fiction & history, & how each influences & changes the other.

Next, analyses of specific development-related topics will provide systematic insights into this broadly similar, but also heterogeneous region.

InstructorYvonne Petry
Time1300-1415

Many people in 16th century Europe believed they were living in the end times, the final, apocalyptic battle between good and evil – this was the only way to make sense of the religious and political chaos they were living through. Religious reformers questioned longestablished church practices, political rulers broke away from the authority of the pope, & the working classes fought for a more just society. Thousands became migrants and refugees as new religious and political boundaries were drawn. New ideas about women, marriage, & sexuality redefined gender relations. The Protestant & Catholic Reformations not only ruptured the Christian Church, but unleashed a century of religious warfare, reimagined social relations and redrew the political map of Europe.

Defining humanity; recognizing the rights of all people; determining social roles for men and women; tracing the effects of Western Imperialism; coming to terms with Western perceptions of Islam: while many of these issues are common for us in the 21st century, people have been trying to understand and solve them for over 300 years. This course will examine these and other so-called “contemporary issues” by placing them within their historical context, beginning in the 17th century and continuing through to today, and by studying what political thinkers, essayists, and even poets, novelists, and artists of the past had to say about them. By using the perspectives from a variety of disciplines—especially history, sociology, psychology, political science, and even literary studies—we will look at how the world-views of our ancestors have shaped the world that we live in today, with the hope that by understanding the past we are not condemned to repeat it.

"When it comes to Canada, what do the First World War, its current system of education, debates over how one may be dressed when accessing public services, and 20th century labour disturbances have in common? None of it can be understood without taking into account the role religion played. Through guest speakers, seminar-style interaction, films, and lectures, this course will offer students an in-depth look at how religion has shaped Canada, and how Canada has shaped religion. Students in this course will better appreciate the country’s religious diversity and will be able to situate current debates involving religion within Canada’s past. This course will offer students a background in Aboriginal traditions, Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Sikhism, and Buddhism, among other religious traditions that are a part of Canadian life. These traditions will be situated briefly within their historical context , and within the current situation of religion in Canada. Contextualizing the current state of religion in Canada will involve the study of major debates that shape religion's role in the country, the changes in Canadian religiosity over the past several decades, the rise of ""No Religion"" individuals, and the important process surrounding reconciliation with Aboriginal Canadians. In addition to students appreciating the religious diversity of Canada, students will also improve their ability to think critically through written argumentation and classroom discussion."
