Course Number: 
Course title: 
Empire and Aftermath - A Global History
Course Description: 
********* Not offered in 2019 ******* This seminar explores major thematic and topical issues that make up "global history". This year we will focus on empires/colonies and their aftermath as a conceptual and narrative lens through which to create and/or critique global history. Can we meaningfully compare empires across time and space? How do we understand decolonization and the end of empire in historical terms? The course will be loosely chronological and we will explore the major empires of the modern world, including French, British, American, Russian, and Japanese cases.. In addition, we will pursue a number of thematic issues related to imperialism and colonialism that can be interdisciplinary and comparative in nature.
