Knowledge-Values Courses: History II: Modern World

This interdisciplinary survey challenges students to critically evaluate the roles that racism, sexism, and prejudice have played in shaping the modern world. Students compare and contrast case studies of slavery, persecution, subjugation, and genocide and explore the violent and nonviolent resistance of marginalized peoples. To achieve a deeper understanding of the broad impact of bigotry and the efficacy of social justice movements, they connect specific struggles to the global narrative.
