HIST001 - MAKING OF MODERN WORLD

Description: 
History 001 explores some of the major ideas, events, and forces which have shaped the modern world since 1750: intellectual, political and social revolutions andcounterrevolutions; industrialization and technology; nationalism, imperialism and colonialism; capitalism, communism, and fascism; and the many struggles for freedom, equality and human rights that have united and divided people across the world.We will look particularly at the ways events or ideas originating in one part of the world have affected other parts, and how global processes manifest themselves differently in different places over time.Many of our case studies will focus on “big events” in parts of the world that may not be as familiar to students of American and European history, or on events in the Americas which have had a powerful impact on the rest of the world.Our goal is to help understand the making of the modern world from a diversity of places and perspectives. The course has been designed to include lectures by several members of the History Department who will introduce their specialties in the context of modern world history.
