Section Information for Fall 2010

Historians and others have conceptualized the Atlantic World through a variety of themes and from different regional perspectives. In this course we will study Atlantic issues including Native American-European-African culture contact and culture transmission in different areas, colonial political and religious structures, the Atlantic slave trade, commodity exchanges, and the creation of racial ideologies. We will look at the way these events and processes affected people and institutions in Latin America, West and West Central Africa, Europe, and British America. Throughout the course we will consider how scholars define the Atlantic World and the categories they use, and we will consider which categories and approaches we find most significant.
