Yale jumps on the band-wagon

Yale has jumped on the Open-Course band-wagon, and what a wonderful band-wagon it is! Not only are they adding courses quite frequently, but their courses all contain a full set of downloadable video lectures. Wonderful! Yale’s motto ‘Lux Et Veritas’ (also in Hebrew on the logo) means ‘Light and truth’. Bravo!!

See the various departmental offerings below and the history course that has made its way onto my to-do list!


HIST 202 – European Civilization, 1648-1945
Professor John Merriman
Fall, 2008
This course offers a broad survey of modern European history, from the end of the Thirty Years’ War to the aftermath of World War II. Along with the consideration of major events and figures such as the French Revolution and Napoleon, attention will be paid to the experience of ordinary people in times of upheaval and transition. The period will thus be viewed neither in terms of historical inevitability nor as a procession of great men, but rather through the lens of the complex interrelations between demographic change, political revolution, and cultural development. Textbook accounts will be accompanied by the study of exemplary works of art, literature, and cinema. more >>
