In each major unit of the course, students will analyze cultural artifacts to excavate the significance of culture (i.e., the arts) as a reflection of and reaction to the development of power relations (i.e., political, economic, social, or gender hierarchies) and the impact of transnational forces (i.e., global networks of trade, war, ideas, or human migration) in diverse cultures and societies over time in world history. Meets the lower-division requirement for World History in the major. PRE-2015 CORE: Level II. 2015 CORE: Creativity & Culture, Acquire, Global Studies.
