    HIST 250 - World History


    This course offers a survey of the history of human societies around the globe. Because of the nature of historical evidence, we will focus on urban cultures with developed writing systems, extensive trade networks, and complex social hierarchies, although we will also pay some attention to other kinds of societies that have flourished. Along with an overview of major historical developments and turning points, we will compare shared features and the most important differences among them in their relationship to the environment, technologies, political organization, religious values, social life for men and women, and dominant systems of ideas, in an effort to understand both the roles of these large-scale structures and the roles of individuals within those structures on the course of historical change over time. As a result, students will gain an appreciation for the diverse foundations of modern human society, and moreover will develop the ability to think critically about historical evidence.
