HSTY3806: Global History

Global historians think on a grand scale, seeking the tectonic historical forces that move beneath the surface of events. Whether the focus is on international diplomacy, war, or the circulation of people, ideas, commodities or diseases, this advanced seminar will address continuity, change and the global inter-connectedness of the past - and the present.
