HIST 1051 Modern History I: The Rise of Europe in the World (Fall: 3 )


Course Description

This course provides an introduction to the history of Europe between the Renaissance and the French Revolution. Many of the momentous changes that transformed Europe during this time arose from how European monarchs, philosophers, scientists, artists, clergymen, merchants, farmers, and even peasants responded to their increasing contact with the peoples, products, cultures, and ideas from Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and the New World. Readings, lectures, and discussions will attempt to convey the history of how Europe rose as it engaged with the rest of the world.
