About the course

Course details

The course will aim to unite a global perspective with an applied context. As such modules will both investigate the underlying historical, cultural, and contemporary patterns of social change in broad terms but also seek to explain the consequences of these in specific case studies.

Students may enquire into the Atlantic slave trade, or the rise of indentured workers and then apply these general experiences to particular social groups, regions, and communities.
