About this Unit
The unit considers the history of the ways that different regions of humanity have interacted, since 1400. The unit will consider such topics as: ethnic-centrism (how to address it in historical and political knowledge?); the era of 'Pan Asia' (what does the rise of China and India mean for historical and political studies?); the prominence of 'nation' in historical knowledge (how to treat human history as 'global'?); the relationship of ethno-nationalism to globalization; the periodization of global history (turning points in the emergence of a global humanity); the determinants of difference and commonality in human history; the characteristics of 'empires'; the natural limits of humanity.
