HIST 560: The Value of Freedom (4)

This course explores multiple definitions of freedom: its value, limitations, and evolving meaning. The course specifically focuses on four major contexts in which human beings have faced existential questions about freedom's value: politics, religion, work, and gender relations. The goals are to explore the ways in which other societies and epochs have valued freedom and balanced it against competing social goods and thus to attune students to the particularities of today's definitions and celebrations of freedom.
