Section Information for Summer 2020

This course will explore the sweeping historical changes that have created today’s world by examining the interactions of the Americas, Europe, Asia, and Africa from about 1500 to the present.  The aim is to show how various political, economic, and social forces have led to a paradox for those living in the early 21st century: a globalized world, yes, but also one in which the histories, cultures, and values of nations and regions often result in conflict.  Students will examine the impact of colonialism and imperialism, war and revolution, as well as social movements that are the basis for the challenges men and women around the globe will face in the new millennium.
