Section Information for Spring 2018
In this course, we will explore the sweeping historical changes that created today’s world. Beginning around 1450, we will trace key processes reshaping the politics, cultures, and economies of various regions. While Europe and the United States are part of our focus, we will also consider Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East. We will survey major features of the principal civilizations of the world and the major types of global contacts and systems, and how these interactions shaped global power dynamics. By the end of the semester, students will have gained the ability to assess change over time on a global level, the capacity to compare different societies, and the understanding of the emergence and impact of global processes throughout the past three-quarters of a millennium.
Satisfies the general education requirement in Western civilization/world history.
