If you are thinking about attending the University of Alberta in the fall here is a course you might be interested in.   The classes run Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 10am – 10:50am and are taught by PhD Candidate History and Classics,  Lara Apps.    This is a for-credit course and can also be taken through open studies.

The course description is as follows:

Is atheism a modern phenomenon? Is modernity quintessentially atheist?  Did atheism help create the modern world? We will engage critically with these recent claims through an exploration of the development of
atheism in Europe from the fifteenth century to the late nineteenth century. We will also consider the relationship between atheism and critiques of the social, political, and moral order. A general  knowledge of European history is recommended, and students should be prepared to participate in class discussions. The course readings will  include several primary sources in English translation.
