HIS 77. Global history
Global history has long held an important place in historical research. Global history goes beyond borders and cultivates one of the things that the discipline of history does best. It aims to identify profound developments in both time and space. Therefore, it transcends established chronologies and challenges our familiar geographical units. Global history compares cultures and societies and follows connections across continents. It asks questions such as: Why did Europe industrialize first? In which ways have colonialism and imperialism formed the world of today? And, how have global epidemic diseases shaped societal development for millennia? The course introduces the main methodological approaches in global history and focuses on a number of the field's key issues. For the exam, we expect the student to be able to characterize, compare and discuss key issues within the field of global history based on the syllabus.

OBS: kurset består tillige af et nærmere afgrænset historisk forskningsområde. Se lektionskatalog.
