x

RELATED UNITS

Unit 9. Connections Across Land

How were land-based trade routes conduits of both commerce and culture? The Eurasian Silk Roads, the trans-Saharan Gold Roads, and the Meso-American Turquoise Road trace the transmission of commodities, religions, and diseases, as well as the movements of people. This unit, along with its companion (Unit 10. Connections Across Water) is related to Unit 25 because it explores an earlier period when cultures were diffused through processes of globalization. more »

Unit 15. Early Global Commodities

What is globalization and when did it begin? Before the sixteenth century, the world's four main monetary substances were silver, gold, copper, and shells. But it was China's demand for silver and Spain's newly discovered mines in the Americas that finally created an all-encompassing network of global trade. This unit is related to Unit 25 because the period it covers set the framework for truly global economic, political, social, and cultural interconnections. more »

Unit 24. Globalization and Economics

How have the forces of globalization shaped the modern world? This unit travels from the Soviet Union to Sri Lanka and Chile to study the role of technology and the impact of economic and political changes wrought by globalization. It is related to Unit 25 because it sets the stage for understanding the economic, political, social and environmental impacts of twentieth-century globalization. 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 25 because it also focuses on the ways that globalization can effect profound changes in identities around the world. more »
