HIS 102 - World Civilizations II Assembling a Globalized Community from 1500


A survey of the development of our current globalized society. This survey explores the convergence of the world’s major societies (the Americas, Africa, Europe, the Middle East, South Asia and East Asia) to their present configuration. This course stresses how the contingent events during “the rise of Europe” in the First (1500-1750) and Second (1850-1950) Ages of Imperialism have created the infrastructure of the present-day global community. Special attention is given to the exchanges that have created our interdependent globalized society, while exploring the uneven and sometimes one-sided nature of these exchanges for most non-Western societies. HIS 101  is strongly recommended, but is not a Prerequisite for this course. Fall, Spring, Summer

Hours: 3
