Course Description

European History

HIEU 1501

Introductory Seminar in Pre-1700 European History

Age of Explorations, 1400-1800
Fall 2015

This seminar will be taught by Prof. Rosemary Lee, who will be joining us in the fall.

Beginning in 1492, European explorers began encountering new lands and peoples.  Our course will examine these cultural encounters in the Atlantic world and the Indian Ocean.  We will consider how different European cultures interacted with unfamiliar peoples.  We will also explore how those outside Europe participated in a shared, global experience of encounter and imperial expansion.
