Transcript Title: WORLD HISTORY 
UC QTR Units - Division: 6.0 - Lower Division 
Course Description: The world is becoming smaller. Different parts of the world are interacting with ever-greater intensity. Globalization and the changing balance of global power are prompting historians to explore history of other cultures and examine the mutual influences and relationships between various regions and cultures throughout history. This global perspective also affects our view of history and artefacts from the past. The course offers an introduction to this new and dynamic scientific discipline. Participants acquire the skills they need to effectively study visual cultures. Students also explore the histories of various cultures: East Asia, Africa, the Middle East and Europe. Amongst other issues, the course will focus on globalization, imperialism, cultural cross-fertilization, ethnocentrism, modernity and post-colonialism. Students practice interpreting visual sources and reflect on the way in which cultures are represented in museums and the academic world.
