Earlier this year, I discovered while rummaging through back issues of the Intellectual History Newsletter that the editors there used to print syllabi of courses germane to the field from their subscribers. “Germane” was interpreted fairly broadly, and that was all to the good, as it gives a snapshot of a wide range of courses at both the graduate and undergraduate levels, from the intellectual history survey to highly specialized seminars.
I invited readers of the blog to send in their syllabi, and now I’m going to post those I received over the next few weeks. If you’ve got a syllabus you’d like to share, please by all means send it on to andrew [dot] seal [at] yale [dot] edu.
Below the fold is syllabus #1 from Daniel Wickberg, Associate Professor of Historical Studies and the History of Ideas at the University of Texas at Dallas, and the immediate past president of the Society. Professor Wickberg has written recently for the blog, penning a luminous essay on Jackson Lears’s classic No Place of Grace: Antimodernism and the Transformation of American Culture, 1880-1920. If you prefer to download the syllabus as a pdf, you can do so here.
