HIS 244 - World History: Globalisation and Modernity, 1500-Present

Credits: 4
This course aims to introduce students to a macro-historical narrative by considering the twin themes of global cross-cultural and social interaction as well as the idea of modernity and its consequences. The course contrasts the historical development of African, American, Asian, and European societies from 1500 to the present. While the course starts with brief pre-modern settings for each continent, by 1500 we already observe significant exchange; we will emphasize the continued rise of global interaction, particularly in terms of trade, political structures, social issues, and cross-cultural engagement.

Prerequisite(s): HIS 121 , sophomore standing by the term course taken.
Fulfills non-Western distribution category within the history major; core social science course.
