Modern Intellectual History in Global Perspectives
CHUM 320
Spring 2017
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: COL 320, FGSS 319

Recently, postcolonial critics have urged historians to reconsider the emergence of ideas central to European intellectual history--including reason, society, and human rights--as part of a global process. In this course, we will explore intellectual history in dialogue with the non-West. Topics include the Enlightenment, romanticism, nationalism, modernity, and post-modernity. Discussions will address how these movements took shape through a series of cross-cultural exchanges and exclusions.
