SBS 357 - History of Empires Through the Eyes of Interlopers and Intermediaries

Through a study of the global history of cross-cultural contacts, students examine how societies responded to local and global consequences of globalization. The course will explore the histories of interlopers and research how they fit in present-day nation-states or the multicultural heritages these entities claim in nationalist narratives. As part of a project-based learning approach, students learn to examine primary and secondary sources (including the collection of local, oral history sources), write book and literature reviews, and present historical research.
