So, you see HIS 418: Bourbon France and go, “That sounds boring!” or “What the heck is Bourbon France?”
Well, it’s about sex. Scandal. Queens supposedly saying “Let them eat cake!” Revolution and people literally losing their heads.
And, it’s a humanity under some General Ed menus! 9:30 am, Tuesdays and Thursdays with Dr. Slaven.
Here’s the official description:
This course examines the Bourbon monarchy in France from its late sixteenth-century origins to the French Revolution. The cultural, social and political influences that shaped France and Europe from 1598 to 1789 are discussed in their historical context. (CRN: 10883)
