The aim of this 100-level introductory course to (World) History is to give you a world-historical point of view on humankind since the formation of early societies to the highly complex industrial and globalized societies of today. The course introduces you to the making of what some now call the Anthropocene from the perspective of history as a critical discipline. Apart from becoming more knowledgeable about long-term and macro-trends in history, you will also learn to approach (world) history from local and other micro-perspectives, and you will look at particular places in time and space from a global or transregional vantage point.

Taught each Fall.
