HIST 358 - The Atlantic World, 1500-1820

3 credits

This course introduces the concept of an Atlantic World. Key integrative and interpretive themes and trends will be considered, including European exploration and expansion into the Atlantic, imperialism and colonialism, the emergence of an Atlantic economy and trade, intercultural interaction and exchange, and the establishment of the African slave trade and the plantation economy. The Atlantic World, as it emerged during the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries was a complex community of communities, tied together by a web of relationships—personal, political, cultural, and commercial—and was, in a sense, a quintessential early modern multicultural community.
