Instructor Information

Quick Actions (Only for Validated Instructor Accounts):

Landmarks in Humanities takes readers on a chronological journey through the landscape of cultural history. Focusing on key works of art, literature, and music from prehistory to the present, Landmarks sets these artifacts in the context of their time and place, emphasizing critical ideas, issues, and styles that have shaped the world’s cultures. The landmarks examined in the text are sources of inspiration, enlightenment, and pleasure. Unique among humanities surveys, Landmarks takes an interdisciplinary approach, exploring art, music (excerpts are conveniently embedded in the ebook), and literature through a thematic organization built on 15 essential topics (e.g., Encounter: Contact and the Clash of Cultures). Instructors can further personalize the text by integrating selections from McGraw Hill CREATE’s custom Traditions Collection, containing western and non-western primary readings from a range of different disciplines, including literature, philosophy, and science.
