Course: HIST 340. Europe and the Early Modern World (3)

Europe experienced dramatic change between Columbus’s voyages and Napoleon’s wars. Around the world, meanwhile, Europeans coexisted and clashed with other peoples as they settled, enslaved, and helped build networks of exchange that became truly global. Delve into debates about witches and cannibals. Examine confrontations between colonists and Indians on the American frontier. Understand how encounters with non-European peoples shaped the thinking of important philosophers like Locke, Rousseau, and Adam Smith. Discover how modern notions of equality, liberty, property, and race sprang from the interactions of Europeans with peoples around the globe.
