This course examines the world in the early modern period, from the thirteenth through the early nineteenth century. This was the first global age, when trade, conquest, and colonization connected all parts of the globe as never before. By 1800, all large areas of human settlement and culture everywhere on Earth interacted with one another – some only barely, others in deep and transforming ways.
