HIS102Y1: Empires, Encounters and Exchanges

Hours: 
48L/20T

Interactions among peoples, empires, and cultures, with particular attention to the non-European world. Can we speak of international relations before the modern concept of nation-states was established? What forms did globalization take in the pre-modern era? Covering a broad chronological sweep from before the Silk Road to the present day, we will look at exchanges of goods and technologies; dissemination of ideas and religions; voyages of migration and exploration; and episodes of conquest and colonization.
