HISTUH 2120 - Thinking Big about the Ancient World

Description
Scholars across academic disciplines have begun to "think big" in new ways about the Ancient World. By recasting ideas and events that seem historically remote, the deep past becomes more relevant than ever to understanding our present. Did globalization begin in the ancient world? Was there an early anthropocene? Can our current crisis of global sustainable development be traced back to the origins of agriculture? Are there ancient world origins to the forms of social inequality we struggle to overcome today, and can our struggles succeed if we overlook what came first? Finally, what can we learn from studying the collapse of ancient civilizations, as we contemplate the possibility of our own? Incorporating readings and materials from across the disciplines, this class will explore foundational questions about continuities between the ancient and modern worlds.
