European Expansion

The first European empires began to develop after 1492, challenging Europeans to build complicated relationships with outside societies. This era saw the first example of globalization in the "world trade system." Tremendous growth in the circulation of goods and ideas and the affirmation of the modern perception of "East" and "West" all played significant roles in shaping politics, business, society, and the environment in new ways. This course will examine these issues and related changes from the 1400s to the 1800s.
