Restoring courses that disappeared from the catalog. History 114, now History 121.

As noted above, History 114 (Early Modern Europe) was inadvertently replaced by the system when an entirely new Medieval history course was added to the catalog, approved by this committee, with the same number, and thus prompted the department's need to renumber the whole European history sequence. In reinstating the course, however, it would be numbered 121, to put it in its proper chronology.
History 114 originally read as follows:
History 114 Early Modern Europe

A survey of 16th-century European society, emphasizing social and political changes brought about by widespread religious reforms. Attention is given to key religious figures, such as Martin Luther, John Calvin and Theresa of Avila. This course will also explore cultural history, the impact of the printing press, and the spread of capitalism. Offered in alternate years.
In restoring History 114 in its new chronological order as 121, the department follows best practices in history departments, which can mean updating both the description and the contents of the course, but that does not mean we are teaching a new course. The updated description would be more specific in the areas where the older description was more generic, highlight topics that were implied in the older version, and take up themes that are more current in the historiography and the teaching of the course in the 21st century. The description would read as follows (please note that this course already has received approval from the Core Curriculum to fulfill the Social, Historical, and Cultural Understanding requirement the next time we teach it, Spring 2017):
