HIST 7309 Graduate Colloquium: International History: Markets, States, and the Transnational (Spring: 3 )
Historians have increasingly sought to transcend the limits of purely national or local history, but their success has been mixed. It is hard to imagine, let alone research or write, truly global history. What is possible is to examine processes that are by definition transnational by focusing on the mechanisms and institutions that connect people, economies and political systems across borders. The course will emphasize moments when projects to order the relationship between states and economies were most visible and insistent - typically after major wars and financial crises - and the success or failure of such grand projects.
