RELATED UNITS

Unit 2. History and Memory

How are history and memory different? Topics in this unit range from the celebration of Columbus Day to the demolition of a Korean museum to the historical re-interpretation of Mayan civilization, exploring the ways historians, nations, families, and individuals capture, exploit, and know the past, and the dynamic nature of historical practice and knowledge. It is related to Unit 13 because it addresses the ways in which history and memory are frequently constructed within the context of individual family units. more »

Unit 4. Agricultural and Urban Revolutions

What do historians know about the earliest farmers and herders, and the evolution of cities? Newly emerging evidence about the "cradles of civilization" is examined in light of the social, technological, and cultural complexity of recently discovered settlements and cities. This unit is related to Unit 13 because as societies became more complex, the role of women and the nature of families and households also changed dramatically. more »

Unit 6. Order and Early Societies

How do diverse political structures and relationships distribute power and material resources?

It is related to Unite 13 because it examines methods of ordering the world, in addition to the families and households. more »

Unit 16. Food, Demographics and Culture

What role has food played in human societies? Studying the production and consumption of food allows historians to uncover hidden levels of meaning in social relationships, understand demographic shifts, and trace cultural exchange. This unit examines the earliest impact of globalization including changing cuisine, environmental impact, and the rise of forced labor as a global economic force. It is related to Unit 13 because, like the variety in family and household organization, distinctive cultural foodways arise against a background of larger global patterns and processes. more »
