HIST 9.01 Empires and Colonies in North America, 1500-1763

Between 1500 and 1763, the northern half of the western hemisphere became a testing ground for ideas about politics, providence, and profit, which would redefine the meaning of “empire” and spark the first global war. Although this course will largely be concerned with regions that later became part of the modern United States, our focus will be upon the encounters, struggles, and exchanges within and between the European, African, and Indian people who shared the continent.

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.
