Instructor: Michael T. Tworek
Meeting time: Monday, 3-5
This course explores the dynamic and diverse movement of people, texts, ideas, and objects across the world during the early modern period (1300-1800). Each week approaches these global exchanges through a case study of a cross-cultural encounter from the Americas and Asia to Africa and Europe. The course will examine the major developments of the period such as the Renaissance, Reformation, Age of Discovery, and the Enlightenment from global and critical perspectives.
