HIST 105 History of the Modern World

This course surveys modern world history from 1450 to the present. It focuses on global processes and regional particularities throughout the world (including the United States). Each instructor will choose several themes for students to engage with through targeted readings and class discussion in small sections. In addition, there is a weekly "lab" in which all students enrolled in the class will engage in large group activities like attending outside lectures or watching selected films.[SS]
