Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

The course will introduce students to different theories, sources, methods and approaches in global history, covering a broad spectrum of geographical areas and historical periods. The diverse, interdisciplinary literature treated in the seminar offers distinctive – sometimes opposing – angles on specific historical topics.
In the course of the semester students will acquire general knowledge of current topics in global history, improve their reading skills and comprehension, develop their debating skills and lower their reluctance to discuss theoretic concepts.

Thematic sessions:
World-systems theory
Inequality and Great Divergence
Ecology
Food and consumption
Empire, trade and labor

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

Each student has to pick a book from the reading list in the first session, which he/she has to present and discuss with the fellow students in the respective thematic session. In addition to the presentation, students must compose a critical review.
Beside the general reading assignment, students have to prepare one related article for each class and write a one-page reaction paper. The central arguments, theories and approaches presented in the literature discussed during class constitute the material for the final examination held in the last week of the semester.
