This course explores broad historical changes that gave rise to today’s modern world. Starting around the year 1250, we will explore networks and interactions that connected Africa, Southwest Asia, Eastern Asia, Europe, and the Americas. By critically engaging with both primary and secondary sources, we will discuss the effects of globalization and the development of mercantilism, industrialization, imperialism, colonialism, nationalism, Cold War dynamics, ideological clashes, and anti-colonialism. Throughout the semester students will analyze documents, identify major global trends and processes that occurred during the last eight centuries, and develop a historical literacy through digital, spoken, and written communications.
