Why Can't I Teach Courses Like This?

I am very jealous (seriously, I am) of Richard Bailey, Associate Professor of History at Canisius College, a Catholic liberal arts college in Buffalo.  As I toil away teaching traditional courses like "Pennsylvania History," "United States History to 1865," and "Colonial America," Richard is teaching the following courses this semester:

HIS 302: "Sex, Sinners, and Spiders: Jonathan Edwards's Life in the Colonial Atlantic World"

HIS 421: "Nature and the Arts of Angling, Restoration, and Contemplation"

HON 246: "American Religions"

Tonight Richard posted a pic of his syllabi on his Facebook page.

By the way, check out his recent book, Race and Redemption in Puritan New England
