HONR 1220 - From Polis to Subject to Citizen

4 credit hours
This course traces the development of political institutions from the ancient world through the Renaissance. Significant attention is given to issues of religious identity (the position of Jews, Muslims and other religious groups in Christian Europe) and political rights. Debates about representation of various social groups in government decision-making as well as investigations of gender shaped political power will also be examined. The course concludes with a look at Renaissance Humanism and the way it shapes emerging notions of politics, society and rights in the modern world.
