HIST111 The Modern World


In the 1750s, the world consisted of many different societies, cultures, states and empires. They were linked not only by trade but also in other ways: ideas, technologies and conflicting notions of the way the world should be. This subject looks at the development of the Modern World and the political, social and economic elements that made it. It includes matters as diverse as revolutions and daily life, gender, trade, human rights, political movements, religion, war and mass culture. Case studies are used to illustrate the broader themes in the subject, which will vary from year to year.
