Expanded Course Description
This course provides a framework for understanding the contemporary world by examining critical developments since 1750. In contrast to most history courses which focus on a particular part of the globe, this course considers social, economic, political, and cultural factors that created the modern world, a world that has become increasingly integrated, yet in which there are significant tensions and contradictions. This course is especially challenging, because it requires students to think about several big historical processes (for example, capitalist development and imperialism) occurring across large chunks of time and space. It is also challenging because it requires thinking about the interrelationships between various historical processes. Students might be asked, for example, to analyze the relationship between capitalist development, revolutions, and ideologies such as liberalism and communism. Or, students might be asked to explore the relationship between imperialism, world war, and the emergence of movements for national liberation and independence. This course does not propose to give students all the answers about "everything that happened everywhere in the world" over the past 250 years. Rather, the goal is to provide students with a framework for thinking about the history of the modern world and the analytical tools for understanding the contemporary world in historical perspective.
