Curricular information is subject to change
The module will aim to foster critical thinking skills among students, to enhance their writing skills, to develop presentation skills, and to let them acquire research skills. Students will gain knowledge about regional histories (China, South Asia, North Africa, Insular and Continental Europe) and global history in the first millennium AD. They will learn about settled and nomadic societies, political systems, economic regimes, trade, religious change, social order and inequalities, literacy and science, and the effects of pandemics and climate change. Just as important are the methods and methodological challenges that beset the writing of global history in this period: the module will address the state of the art, the strengths and limitations of comparative history, the availability and absence of evidence, the problem of incommensurability across distant cultures, and the differences in historiographies from Europe, America, China, and Japan.
