HIST 1220 - Western Civilization: Modernity from 1500


What is the West? Is there indeed a coherent, identifiable Western heritage? If so, what is distinctive about the West’s heritage? And what, further, is distinctive about the West’s modern heritage? Addresses these questions by way of an examination of major intellectual, cultural, and political developments from 1500 until the present. Topics to be considered include the Renaissance; the religious Reformations of the 16th- century; absolutism, constitutional monarchy, and enlightened despotism; the Scientific Revolution and the Enlightenment; the American and French Revolutions; industrialization and nation building; modernism; imperialism and the World Wars; and the rise and fall of totalitarian regimes in the 20th- century.
