HIST 72.02 Nomad Rulers and Origins of the Modern World

Between the twelfth and sixteenth centuries, government by rulers of nomadic origin produced similar changes in China, the Middle East, and  Russia, and were later diffused by various means to Europe, South Asia and Southeast Asia. These changes included the promotion of vernacular languages, increasing influence of folk and dissident religions, and the rise of self-legitimating rulership. These influences later challenged cultural and political authorities across Eurasia, laying the foundation for the modern world.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
