A4379: Causality, Consequence, and the Everyday Application of History in Splash Spring 2021 (Apr. 24, 2021)
I intend to teach a course with very specific examples meant to highlight how the decisions and actions of past people continue to influence our lives, and how thinking like a historian can inform our lives today about how we became who we are. Examples will include subjects like WW2, WW1, Estonian History, and the Gunpowder Plot. The goal will be to expose students to both common and niche historical episodes to reveal how small decisions affected entire societies.
