Course outline:

In examining the divergent societies of the world between the early centuries of the Common Era and the onset of global imperialism in the 19th century, this course provides students with an expansive knowledge of non-Eurocentric global history. Focusing on selected themes across the pre-industrial worlds of Africa, Asia, Europe, the Pacific and the Americas, it teaches students to think in terms of comparative and connected histories. The various styles of encounters between different societies are particularly explored in relation to specific aspects of long-term political, economic, social, and cultural processes.

Lecture times: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday 3rd period.

DP requirements: 100% of required coursework and course evaluation.

Assessment: Classwork counts for 50% of the final mark, and one two-hour examination at the end of the semester in which the course is taken counts for the remaining 50%.

NOTE: Credit will not be given for both HST1013F and HST1015F
