Investigating Economic and Environmental Change in Europe

The course uses general principles and themes from economics to investigate how humans adjust to economic and environmental changes brought on by commerce, conquest, technological change and natural events such as earthquakes and volcanoes. As we travel through many sites in Italy, we explore the functioning of markets, the role of institutions, and the use of its natural resources, such as the Venetian Lagoon, to its ancient, medieval, and model economic history. By immersing ourselves in both academic literature and visiting important sites, we develop first-hand knowledge of the economic and environmental incentives that induced human beings to alter these environments for thousands of years.
