Industrializations: Commodities in World History

HIST 252
Spring 2017 not offered
Crosslisting: ENVS 252
Certificates: Environmental Studies, International Relations

This course defines "industrialization" broadly to encompass 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.
