Gateway Seminar: Asia in Global History


The goal of the course is to first explore the most important networks and flows that connected the Asian region to the Eurasian world since the ancient Silk Route and the spread of Buddhism through the new dynamics of the Early Modern World--16th to 18th centuries. The second part of the course probes the new dynamics that integrated Asian societies through Western capitalism and imperial forces in the 19th and 20th centuries. It will also cover the ‘rise of Asia’ in the current era of globalization. Instructor: Duara
