HIST 105 - World History (Asian Perspectives) 1200-1800

(3 credits)
This is world history from an Asian perspective. This course traces the origins of the modern world through an exploration of Asian History from the 13th to the 18th century. It does so through the study of three regions that were particularly important to the shaping of Asian and world history. These are the Islamic ecumenical regions of western and southern Asia, the Sino-centric world of East Asia, and the commerce laden Indian Ocean region. The course will shed light on the economic, social, and political changes that each of these regions underwent in their march towards modernity. The themes examined in this course will include technology, trade and communication, religious conflict and accommodation, women and gender, environment, and the rise of modern states. Fall.
