This course introduces students to the growing historiography of globalization and examines critically methodologies and conventions for narrating world, universal, comparative and global history. Focusing on four moments of economic, political, cultural, and technological exchange in the last two centuries, the course explores the history of globalization — where it comes from, what drives it, limits it, makes it complicated — and introduces a set of analytic tools for thinking about the current discourses on globalization. The aim is to put current debates in a broad historical framework and to understand what is unique (and what is not) about global interactions. While some historical background will be helpful, there are no prerequisites for this course; it is intended for a broad audience.
