Global Histories: Problems in Scale, Scope, Depth, and Time
HIST 315
Fall 2018 not offered
Crosslisting: CHUM 341

How big is too big? How far back in time can historians go? How best to understand the relationship between science and history? What counts as evidence? What accounts for the rise (or return, some would argue) of macro-history? What does it portend for the future of microhistory? This advanced seminar will examine the history and historiographical implications of macro-historical frameworks, including comparative history, world history, global history, deep history, and big history.
