Section Information for Fall 2019
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. We will discuss the effects of economic, social, political and cultural globalization by critically engaging with and analyzing primary and secondary sources. We also will explore how historians shape our understanding of the past. Throughout the semester students will actively participate in the work of historians by analyzing, comparing, debating, and questioning sources of information. Course participants will also identify major global trends and processes that occurred during the last eight centuries by developing a historical literacy through digital, spoken, and written exchanges of information. This is an Open Education Resource course that utilizes online resources, so reliable access to internet is a requirement.
