European Trade: Regional Economies and their Global Dimensions (17th -18th Centuries)

6.00 ECTS (2.00 SWS), SPL 7 - Geschichte
Continuous assessment of course work

During the 17th and 18th centuries the patterns of European trade changed fundamentally. Traditional economic regions like the Mediterranean area or Upper Germany became less important, whereas the North-West European countries emerged to the leading centers of European world economy. However, regional economies remained fundamental for the basic supply of the population. The course will discuss economic institutions like fairs or banks, the new economic policy of the emerging modern states, different regional economies and their interaction, and the global dimensions (goods, trading hubs/ports, merchants/companies) of the European economy.
