HIS 106 - Global History from 1648

3 credits

This course is a survey of global history from the 16th century to the present. It explores the origins of the modern era and the forces, which have shaped the 20th century global relations. Attention is given to the development of Western democratic institutions through the English, French, and American revolutions and the European expansion into all corners of the world in the form of colonialism. The response of non-western societies to that expansion dominates much of the course and special emphasis is placed on the resultant changes in Africa, Asia, and the Americas. The course also covers the effects of modern warfare on humankind and new international institutions as the world enters the 21st century.
