Marine/Maritime World History

ENVS 370
Fall 2011
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: HIST 370
Certificates: Environmental Studies

The purpose of this seminar is to explore the intersections of maritime history, world history, and marine environmental history. At the center of our investigations is how humans and the groups that they coalesce into have shaped and have been shaped by their marine environments. While much of our focus will be on the last 5,000 years, we will also be concerned with change and structure over the very long term, penetrating to the beginnings of the Holocene and perhaps even to the emergence of anatomically modern humans. A central aim of the seminar is to chart a course for a marine/maritime world history.
