World History: The First Globalisation HTA102

Hobart, Launceston

Introduction

This unit explores the first wave of globalisation that occurred in the long nineteenth century, between the Age of Revolution and the First World War. We explore how the world was transformed by the spread of industrialisation, nationalism, capitalism, imperialism, racism and ideologies of progress. Using a series of case studies to examine the impact of these changes on people living in different parts of the globe, this unit will enhance your understanding of the origins of our modern world.
