HSTY2692 - International and Global History

Semester 1, 2014  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Marigold Eppie Rose Black


The new history is investigated on a global scale, but international history has been around for more than a century. This unit explores the international and global dimensions of the past. It focuses on the history of internationalist thinking since the seventeenth century, varieties of internationalism in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the intersecting modern histories of internationalism and nationalism, and the historical development of international institutions. It also offers students an understanding of the latest scholarship on international and global history, and the chance to investigate the international past for themselves through the use of primary sources.
