This course explores the transnational history of the United States in the modern global era. Students will examine the roots of globalization, from the earliest migrations across the erring Straits, the origins and development of colonial and imperialism, up through the foundations of the modern “American empire”. They will explore the dominant historical themes that trace the origins and development of the hemisphere’s encounters, connections, and relationships with the peoples and environments of Asia, Africa, and Europe. Three lecture hours per week.
