About this Unit
In 2020 this unit replaced by 102768 - When Worlds Collide: European Empires and the World, c.1600-1950. Globalisation has reshaped the entire world over the past 500 years. This unit focuses on the main dynamics leading to a more integrated world. It analyses the major transformations that human societies experienced during the past five hundred years, when many societies transitioned from agrarian societies to modern nation-states. The unit focuses on the expansion and contraction of European and Asia empires, the rise of capitalism, the mass migration of peoples, the distribution of plants, animals, and diseases. There is also discussion of resistance to globalisation, including cultural, political, military, and religious movements. By considering these processes, we can gain an understanding of modern history and our globalised world.
