New courses

This morning I’m presenting five new course proposals before the history department curriculum committee. If they approve the courses, they’ll be sent on to a college-wide committee for further approval. If they approve as well, I’ll be able to start teaching these classes next spring. The courses I’m proposing are:

  • History of Ancient Greece
  • History of Rome (these two split up the Greece and Rome class that I’m teaching now into two separate, semester-long courses)
  • Roman Law
  • Barbarians in the Greek and Roman World
  • History of Northern Europe to 1066

I’ve gotten a lot of encouraging comments from my fellow history faculty so I hope that all will go well today and with the college-wide committee later. I’ve been pretty free to design the courses I’ve been teaching so far, but I’m looking forward to teaching courses that are completely of my own creation.
