Main themes
The period covered by this course goes from the fall of the Byzantine Empire to the contemporary period. There is a primary, but not exclusive focus on European and North American history. Students will be given the keys to an understanding of historical development on a global level, highlighting different phases of globalisation and the resulting identities created.
By the end of this course, students should - have acquired a global overview of the major historical dynamics that have shaped modern societies. - be familiar with the key events from this period of history (such as the fall of the Byzantine Empire, Lutheran reforms, the Treaty of Westphalia, the Galilean Revolution, the French and American Revolutions, the Russian Revolution) and be able to place them on a time line. - be able to show the relationships of historical dependency between the processes of social structuring which are studied as specialist subjects within the degree course (Politics, Economics, Social Studies, Communication)
