HIST 1020 - World Civilizations II: World History from c. 1000 to 1800


(3) Credit Hours

This course will show how rising wealth and expanding material culture in Southeast China and Northwestern Europe, and the Eurasian impact of the Mongols led to a dynamic global interaction. The demand for commodities stimulated exploration, trade, and imperialism. The course will examine feudalism in Western Europe and Japan, the great imperial states of Eurasia, Africa, and the Americas, and colonialism in Africa, Asia, and the Americas, as well as the rise of the modern state and capitalism. It will show how global cultures mutually interacted, traditions changed and constrained, and what social, cultural, artistic, and intellectual changes occurred. Pre or corequisite: ENGL 1010 or department head approval.
