Courses I’m Taking This Semester

History Courses

Roman History- okay not going to lie this one isn’t super interesting but I still enjoy it to an extent. I really like learning about Roman history but I am more of a modern history kind of person so this is a little out of my area of interest. It also doesn’t help that most of the people in my seminar class are kind of unfriendly.

History of Diaspora’s– This class is super interesting to me and I am so glad I took it. So far we have learnt a lot about Jewish diaspora communities and soon we’re going to learn about other diaspora communities. Since I am from a diaspora community I find it very relatable and I really like my professor he has such a mellow vibe. The only problem is that it’s a three hour class and sometimes I end up tuning out by mistake.

American Enlightenment- I have taken quite a few American history classes and one with the same professor so I knew I was going to like this one. It’s been so fun and interesting and I look forward to learning more. We are reading both Franklin’s and Jefferson’s autobiographies which are so fascinating.

American Popular Culture- This is a Popular Culture/History course that I am so obsessed with. This is one of my favourite classes I’ve taken so far. My professor is so understanding so we have a much smaller workload and a really fun final paper. We are basically learning about the past American culture and often we compare it to the American culture now.

Other

Archaeology- Not going to lie- the Indiana Jones movies had a lot to do with me taking this course. It’s super fun and interesting- nothing like Indiana Jones though- and I think learning it really compliments the history courses I’m taking. Plus, my seminar class is really fun and friendly!

Country Music- Okay, so this is just the best class ever (may change my mind after I get my marks for my first assignment…). It is super fun, absolutely fascinating and my professor is really good. Even though we have no breaks the two hour class flies by and I rarely tune out. I love country music and learning about it in detail is so interesting because I knew nothing about its origins and how it became popular. Seriously loving this class!

    Research the 300k white British slaves in the pioneering days of America.

    Research the 1,25 million white slaves raided from Europe, taken to North Africa & Arabia by Muslims in the 1600s to 1800s.

    Currently a diaspora of esp white South Africans fleeing a neo-Marxist very corrupt, inefficient and sometimes criminal regime. Many blacks also leave. It’s not a racial issue but a disaster of incompetence.

    I think there has to be a Polish diaspora since WW2 and communism.

    Politics today is the history of tomorrow.

    Your classes all sound so interesting – the Country and American Pop Culture classes seem so fun! I’d be so fascinated to take your diaspora class.

    My classes are largely quantitative but I used to love classes like these when I was in high school and undergrad. I love history and English – there is always so much to learn!

    Hi! You’re classes sound awesome!! I took am African Diaspora class back when I was in college and it was just so crazy to learn about the struggles people faced. It was largely based in Africa but my professor put a well timeline on slavery began and how it goes back waaaaay back. I was just wondering if your Diaspora course focused on one group or is a broad course?

      That sounds like a really interesting class! My class focuses on diasporas in general so we talk about multiple diaspora groups. So far we’ve learnt about the Jewish, Irish, African and Armenian diasporas.
