HIST 36100 Missionaries, Militaries and Merchants in the Early Modern World

This upper division history course focuses on the global interaction of people groups that occurred during the early modern period. It considers the nuances and varieties of interactions--cultural, religious, political, economic, demographic, environmental, and social--that occurred after the exploratory voyages of the fifteenth century. After providing an overview of the ensuing encounters, exchanges, and negotiations, the course will focus on the experience of one or two world regions, considering how those areas of the world shaped and were, in turn, shaped by the era of early modern globalization.
