For seminar times and classrooms please consult the MQ Timetable.
Required and Recommended Texts
Required readings will be listed week-by-week on the iLearn site.
Per Faculty of Arts policy, all required readings are available on-line only but it is recommended that students print out the required readings and read them in hard copy as pedagogical research suggests that (given current technology) comprehension and recall are superior when reading hard copy text as opposed to reading on-line.
The following general, introductory texts are available on Reserve or in electronic format (*) via the MQ Library:
Fernand Braudel The Mediterranean and the Mediterranean World in the Age of Philip II
*Daniel Goffman The Ottoman Empire and Early Modern Europe
W.V. Harris (ed) Rethinking the Mediterranean
*Henri Pirenne Mohammed and Charlemagne
*Merry Wiesner-Hanks Early Modern Europe
