“So, You Think You Want to Study History? - bu.edu/history/undergraduate-program/why-study-history/. Boston University has produced this helpful list of advice for those interested in studying history. This quote is taken from their myth #3, “History is just old-fashioned liberal arts. I need ‘real world’ skills. I should major in something ‘sensible’ even if it’s not what I’m really excited about.” As it happens, Jeff Weiner, the CEO of LinkedIn recently commented in an interview for Wired Magazine that the greatest skills gap in the United States is “written communication, oral communication, team building, people leadership, collaboration.”
The course examine the origins, changing nature, uses, and attitudes towards human violence in western history.
What is violence? What do we mean by it? Is it innate or learned? Are we becoming more or less violent? These are all questions that we will ask throughout this course. A History of Violence will examine the different types of violence that humans have practiced over the centuries, put them into historical context, and try to understand why those different forms of violence are used at particular times, and not others; why some kinds of violence are accepted in some parts of the world but not others?
