HIST 2270 - The Middle East and the World


This course offers students an opportunity to critically explore the historical connections between Middle East history and other parts of the world. Structured as a chronological survey spanning the period of 600-1990 AD, the course covers events and processes related to developments in politics, economics, social organization, religion, science and technology, and culture. It highlights key moments in which dynamics in the Middle East shaped other parts of the world. Equally important will be those moments in which developments in other parts of the world helped shape the region. The survey will draw on connections between the Middle East and multiple other regions: Africa, South Asia, Southeast Asia, Europe, and the Americas. No prior historical or regional knowledge necessary.
