Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The course offers an overview of the main theories used in recent scholarship to analyse the dynamics pertaining to early modern Asia, roughly between the 13th and 16th centuries. Through a survey of various models (such as world system, proto-globalization, connected histories, parallel histories, etc.), the course addresses the issue of defining space and time scales which are suitable for the study of global history. The course will be based on the reading of both secondary literature, as well as of relevant primary sources (in English translation).

Assessment and permitted materials

Course Requirements:
You have to write almost before every session a short assignment (max. 500-600 words), and a longer final review (max. 1000 words) on two selected sources.
No paper will be due the first and the last teaching weeks (05.03.2019 and 25.06.2019).

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Grade Breakdown:
11 small papers for 0-5 points = 55 points
1 final review for 0-15 points
Class participation (not mere presence but engagement) = 0-30 points
Below 50 points (inclusive of 50) means a failing grade (5)

Students can miss up to two (2) classes. Any further absences will require a doctor's note or might reflect badly on your attendance grade.
