This site consists to the Lecture Notes and Selected Source Materials for the lectures of Professor John William Bailly of the FIU Honors College. Bailly teaches interdisciplinary honors courses at Florida International University in Miami. These courses aim for teachers and students to extend out of the comfort zone of their respective majors and explore commonalities and contradictions across disciplines. Bailly holds an MFA in Painting and Printmaking from Yale. He is not an historian, nor is he a writer, hence the many quotations and links on this site.
Professor Bailly teaches Miami in Miami and is the Faculty Director for España, France, and Italia Study Abroad.
