History 336 - Crusades: Conflict/
Accommodation with Chandler
This is my favorite class! Once a week
we take a break from lecture and talk
about the reading assignment. We have
a couple of books to read from, but most
of them consist of primary sources from
both the Muslim and Christian perspec-
tive. Today’s reading dealt with possible
motivating factors for crusaders – finan-
cial gain, remission of sins as promised
from the Pope, or simply religious
solidarity.”

Art 339 - Gender & Identity in Art with
Dr. Amy Golahny
We had a brief lecture and some student
presentations. Each student is responsible
for an oral report on an assigned influen-
tial female artist from the time period we
are covering in class. This week we are
wrapping up the 18th century and today
we had reports on Rosalba Carriera and
Vigee-Lebrun Kauffmann. We then went
over what would be on the midterm next
Wednesday!”

History 210 - Ancient History with
Dr. Cullen Chandler
Today we discussed Thucydides’ ac-
count of the Peloponnesian War. Since
the class is big and everyone is expected
to participate, we divided into smaller
groups to answer some of the discussion
questions assigned to accompany the
reading. My group was made up of four
girls, so between comparing the writ-
ing styles of Herodotus and Thucydides,
there was plenty of small talk and
laughing :) Despite of all the distractions
though, we were able to finish all of the
questions and share with the class during
the open discussion portion for the last 15
minutes of class.”
