UNIT 18: Rethinking the Rise of the West

x

RELATED UNITS

Unit 1. Maps, Time, and World History

What tools do world historians use in the study of history? This unit begins the study of world history by examining its use of geographical and chronological frameworks: how they have shaped the understanding of world history and been used to chart the past. It is related to Unit 18 because changes in historical views of the rise of the West resulted largely because historians altered their units of analysis-from the nation-state to larger, supranational networks. more »

Unit 19. Global Industrialization

How was the story of the industrial revolution a global process? Industrialization was and is a global process, not just a European or American story. This unit links Cuba, Uruguay, Europe, and Japan, examining the impact of industry on trade, environment, culture, technology, and lives around the world. It is related to Unit 18 because of the contested but important role industrialization played in the rise of the West. more »

Unit 18. Imperial Designs

How does historical scholarship change over time, and why do the perspectives of historians shift? This unit recaps the economic and political events that led to the rise of the West, but examines and re-examines those events through differing opinions of its causes, reflecting changes in historical interpretation. This unit is related to Unit 18 because modern imperialism, as it developed in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, was contingent upon the rise of the West. more »

Unit 26. World History and Identity

How have global forces redefined both individual and group identity in the modern world? This unit examines the transnational identity that emerged from the Chinese diaspora, and compares it to a newly re-defined national Chechen identity forged through war with Russia. It is related to Unit 18 because the global links created during this earlier period of the rise of the West were critical to the development of present-day globalization. more »
