Welcome to History of Western Civilization II at Rutgers Newark. I am especially excited for this course and have spent the last two months building this experimental curriculum. As you’ll find, this is far from a conventional Western Civilization course. I’m looking forward to how you’ll engage with it.

Because of issues related to intellectual property rights, for this course, we will not be using Canvas or Blackboard. Instead, all course materials and links will be available on this site.

In the menu, you will see a tab for each week — these will be opened week-by-week by Sunday night.
