HIST 132 - Globalization in Historical Perspective, 1850 to the Present


1 unit(s)
Commentators tell us that we live in “a global age,” but dramatic increases in worldwide contacts—economic and social, political and cultural—are not unique to our time. In the late nineteenth century, for example, steamships, telegraphs, railroads, and even movies fostered an increase of interaction across national boundaries and across oceans that was every bit as remarkable as today’s. Using such sources as novels, maps, and picture postcards from the Aran Islands to Senegal, this course explores the modern roots and historical development of globalization.

Not offered in 2017/18.
