HIS 319 - Atlantic World

3 Semester Hours
The purpose of this course is to study the rise and fall of an Atlantic World System that tied Europe, Africa and the Americas into a web of economic and cultural interdependence. We will examine different models of New World colonization by European colonial powers, the ramifications of New World Slavery, encounters and conflicts between native and colonial peoples and the development of nation states in the Western Hemisphere. Throughout the course, we will emphasize comparative analysis of historical events and trends, examining how different peoples in different regions experienced colonization, slavery, trade, nation-making and emancipation in the Atlantic World.
