Hey everyone! I'm putting together a global history course (1500 to present) for next term, and I'd like to hear what kinds of things you'd like to know about if you had the opportunity! So, if you had the whole world post-1500 as your starting point, what places, people, ideas, events, changes, networks, border crossings, etc. would interest you?
I'm asking you so I can see the range of interests out there, and maybe get some fresh perspectives on it. Also, if you teach or take global history, what texts does your class use? Which ones did you like?
Thanks to anyone who feels like answering!
