hey remy, maybe as thread starter you should listen ahead and think of discussion points during the week, maybe? have it be like the thread is the seminar after the lecture, where we discuss what we are learning?

He's super engaging. I'll start w/ discussion prompts for next week – I'm a bit snowed under here. Maybe we can just start out by listing things we've learned/what's new to us?

I was interested to learn about the different governance structures operating immediately prior to the renaissance, how city states, independently run cities, nascent countries, the holy roman empire, various small ancestral territorialities and the church all vied for land and authority. While I knew that the borders of Europe (obv) shifted a lot, I didn't know that they weren't close to contiguous until relatively late in the game. Also the central trading corridor (to Constantinople?) makes a lot of sense as a defining line between East/West

I love when professor gets laughing or distracted and talking about biking

Documents more worthwhile than textbooks if you only had to pick one, obv, but does uh, anybody have a bead on a PDF of the textbook?

(I listened to some lectures in the wrong order because I was confused. So I'm listening in the right order now, but have had to go back to the second lecture, on the renaissance.)

I think we're sticking to one thread per class?

iatee, Monday, 24 October 2011 19:05 (ten years ago) link

Ravaging Rick Rude (a hoy hoy), Tuesday, 25 October 2011 20:04 (ten years ago) link
