The story opens to find the vengeful dragon Smaug (voice of Benedict Cumberbatch) decimating the peaceful hamlet of Laketown as Bilbo, Thorin (Richard Armitage) and the rest of the dwarves lay claim to the Lonely Mountain. But their celebration is short-lived as Thorin grows obsessed with finding the Arkenstone. Meanwhile, Galadriel (Cate Blanchett) Elrond (Hugo Weaving) and Saruman (Christopher Lee) battle the Nazgul in an attempt to free Gandalf (Ian McKellen), and get some unexpected help from eccentric wizard Radagast (Sylvester McCoy). Unfortunately for all involved the struggle has only just begun, because as armies of dwarves, elves, orcs, humans and goblins converge at the base of the Lonely Mountain, the fight for the future of Middle Earth begins.

This course will explore the lives and conditions of these individuals, and their world, making their living on the ocean&rsquo;s surface, in port cities, and along the peripheries of the Atlantic world. This course will explore select topics in Atlantic world studies beginning with placing the apparently timeless Atlantic Ocean into a world historical context. Following sessions will explore and detail the lives of those who made their living on the sea, legally or illegally, through a variety of industries including trade, privateering, piracy, whaling, and fishing. The course will include select readings from the current historiography in addition to primary sources such as images, letters, and ships logs.</p> <p style="text-align:center">[[{"fid":"279366","view_mode":"default","fields":{"format":"default","field_file_image_alt_text[und][0][value]":"","field_file_image_title_text[und][0][value]":""},"type":"media","attributes":{"class":"media-element file-default"}}]]</p> <p>1st Session:&nbsp; The Ocean and the Atlantic World</p> <p>To expand our understanding of these individuals and their transnational interactions, modern historians such as David Armitage or Bernard Bailyn have established the field of Atlantic world history which has superseded earlier and limiting national and imperial frameworks. What is the Atlantic world? How exactly do we tell the history of a trackless ocean environment? What are the benefits of making transnational connections versus prior national or imperial frameworks? How did inhabitants of the early modern period perceive the Atlantic world? What was the role of empires? What of the indigenous peoples?</p> <p>2nd Session: Law</p> <p>Was the ocean a lawless space? What was the source of the laws established by the various European empires in the Atlantic world? How could monarchs enforce laws across large distances? With the discovery of the New World, how exactly did European empires mark out and claim space in the Atlantic world? How did interaction with indigenous peoples and the introduction of slavery shape imperial laws? This session will provide a brief examination of the modern legal historiography in the early Atlantic world.</p> <p>3rd Session: &nbsp;Sailors</p> <p>Prior histories have often obscure the contributions of those simple souls who lived before the mast in favor of glorious naval officers and triumphant sea battles. In this session, we will examine the individuals who made their mark to sail aboard wooden vessels aboard treacherous seas to make their living. Scurvy, impressment, shipwreck, and war were just a few of the hazards of the job we will consider. Were these ships and their workers the first factories and portents of modern industrialism? What role did sailors play in world and domestic politics? What can we learn of race by studying multicultural crews?</p> <p>4th Session: Piracy/Privateering</p> <p>From 1650 until the mid-1720s is considered the &ldquo;golden age of piracy&rdquo; often popularized in modern film, however pirates plagued the waters of the Atlantic world for centuries. Were these pirates actually the lawless rogues of legend? Were they precursors to labor unions or perhaps even communism? What is the difference between a privateer and a pirate? This session will examine the modern historiography on piracy and privateering along with uncovering the fascinating legal environment in which these historical actors operated.</p> <p>5th Session: Whaling</p> <p>The practice of taking beached whales for their oil, bone, and meat dates back to prehistoric times, but the discovery of the New World revealed unimaginably rich hunting grounds. This session will explore the early modern period&rsquo;s greatest whalers, the Quakers of Nantucket, as they moved from offshore whaling to launching large whale oil-processing wooden vessels to the distant waters of the southern Atlantic and beyond. What was the value of this industry to the world&rsquo;s markets? How did spermacetti (sperm whale head matter) reduce crime on London&rsquo;s streets? How did peace-loving Quakers enter into such a violent practice as whale hunting?</p> <p>Saturdays, April 18, 25 May 2, 9, 16 &nbsp; &nbsp; 3 pm to 5 pm. &nbsp;Presented in the 3rd floor Mae West Community Room. &nbsp;Readings will be handed out in class.</p> <p>Limited Registration: &nbsp;Sign up in person at the 2nd floor desk starting Saturday, April 11.</p> <p>All Courses are Free and Open to the Public.</p> <p>The Professor: &nbsp;Brian J.
