Industrializations
HIST 252
Fall 2011 not offered
Crosslisting: ENVS 252

Industrialization is a global process with diverse consequences for the societies and environments it incorporates. This course will investigate the development and application of systematic knowledge to agriculture and manufacturing in 18th- to 21st-century societies. Although special attention will be devoted to the British and American examples, the course will be organized by commodity rather than nationality, focusing on traffic in materials used in production of food, clothing, and medicines for example, cotton, rubber, guano, wheat, bananas, and quinine.
