Not open to students who have taken HIS 104. Old Core: Fulfills Western History. New Core: Fulfills 3 credits in Area of Knowledge II.

Revised Course Description: Nations are groups of people who share language, tradition, and culture. Nineteenth-century European peoples developed forms of political, social, and economic organization, consolidating their nations into powerful industrial states. Looking for raw materials and markets, influenced by notions of religious and cultural superiority, and competing for prestige, Europeans projected their power globally, creating immense multinational empires. This learning community will explore the relationship between the empire and the colonized through history and narrative. Reading literature of descendants of both colonizers and colonized, we will explore the lasting artistic, psychological, and political impact of this dynamic period in history.
