ATLANTIC HISTORY (DV) (GH)

2017 Fall Term

3 Units [GHDV]

Race & Ethnic Cultures General 150

This course explores the Atlantic community created as a result of Christopher Columbus' voyage of 1492. It examines the process which drew together the history of four continents, Europe, Africa, North and South America as a result of the commerce, migrations, and imperial rivalries inititated by the Columbian encounter. The course, thus, focuses not only on the Atlantic Ocean itself as a frontier and zone of interaction but on the destruction and reconfiguration of Indigenous societies, the patterns of labor developed as a result of African slavery, the creation of new world societies, independence movements and different strategies of accommodation, resistance and rebellion.
