HIST 2254 A Social History of Money in the World (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

Money, they say, makes the world go round. But what is it? How does it acquire value? Who or what says how much it is worth? This question has been answered in very different ways throughout time and throughout the world. Even today the meaning of money varies greatly. This course will explore the meaning of money mostly in ancient, medieval, modern Europe and America but we will also explore the meaning of money in non-Western parts of the world, as well.
