Class description

"The Borderlands of Western Civilization" will survey some of the key “border-making” events and forces in the Atlantic World. While not strictly a history course, it would be organized chronologically and thematically as an interdisciplinary exploration of some of the critical borderlands of the modern world. Briefly, the course will explore the workings of religion, race, gender, empire and nation in the construction of modernity. Some of the topics covered include the Re-Conquest in Iberia, Conquest in the Americas, state-making and revolution in the Atlantic World.
