FYSP 071 - Pirates and Piracy in Times Past

FC SSCI WINT
4 credits
From the ancient Mediterranean to the South China Seas, maritime theft is a phenomenon transcending people, place, and time. It provides a fascinating framework with which to assess historical contexts of violence, authority, economics, and law. This seminar sails in pursuit of history’s notorious and obscure piratical personalities and their watery worlds, focusing particular attention on both the socio-economic milieus from which these seafaring criminals emerged and those they subsequently fashioned in their exploits.
