Over the past generation, as historical research has expanded beyond national borders to explore regional and global interactions, the field of "Atlantic history" has emerged as one of the most vibrant and exciting areas of research. This course takes stock of recent work, highlighting new methods and empirical and theoretical approaches to Atlantic history. Specific subjects of reading and discussion will include environmental history, Native American/ First Nations history, as well as economic history and material culture. The course is a graduate-level Master’s course, although upper-level undergraduates considering graduate work are welcome, as are interested non-specialists. The approach will mix lecture, conversation, and close analysis of primary sources, and will involve intensive reading. Written work will be necessary for students taking the course for credit.
This course is intended for anyone with an interest in international issues, as well as for members of NGOs and public servant, diplomats, journalists and business executives.
The school is organized in collaboration with the University of Montreal Faculty of Arts and Sciences and can be credited at the Master’s level as PLU6909A-D (3 cr. and 1,5 cr.).
The school is open to third-year undergraduate students with a GPA of at least 3,5/4.3. Enrollement is conditional on the approval of their undergraduate program advisor.
