Globalization/Hist Perspective

Globalization in Historical Perspective
In this course, we will examine dynamics of colonial and capital expansion that have reshaped the globe since the 1700s. We will read classical social theorists, contemporary scholars, and novelists to discern ways in which human life around the world has been intertwined and differentiated. We will consider the formation of categories such as "West" and "East," the racialized and gendered ways in which colonizers have distinguished themselves from the colonized, and strategies by which these boundaries and hierarchies have been challenged. Students will gain a broad understanding of modern world history and a critical framework for evaluating imperialism.
