Colleagues, I’m pleased to post a version of my new experimental course online for the public good. Please visit bit.ly/survivejewishhistory to access the course.
The course is divided into twelve Existential Crises, covering historical eras from the Hellenistic to the Spanish Expulsion. Undergraduate students are required to complete several academic exercises to “survive” each level and pass the course (the syllabus is located at bit.ly/survivejewishhistory). The lighter version of the course presented here does not award undergraduate credit, but students are encouraged to participate by posting their responses in the comments section. I also encourage new visitors to click on the “follow” button at the bottom right of the website in order to receive course updates.
I hope you enjoy this experimental new course! Learn in good health.
