全学自由研究ゼミナール (Knowledge Encounters in Global History and the Contemporary World)

Knowledge Encounters in Global History and the Contemporary World
This course will lead you worldwide to understand knowledge formations in various encounters, such as trades, colonization, religions, and wars. This course is not a conventional history course centered on specific periods or places. Instead, we will travel through historical and contemporary themes relevant to knowledge encounters and formation processes. We will review scholarly discussions on global history, the history of knowledge and other related fields of studies, analyze both the pre-modern and modern systems of knowledge and their encounters in the global context, and explore the possibilities of the formation of new forms of knowledge for our future.

Learning Goals
•To review cases of worldwide knowledge encounters and networks in history and the present;
•To understand different approaches to contextualize knowledge in historical, social, and cultural contexts;
•To identify, compare, and analyze the knowledge systems and their communications;
•To develop your viewpoints toward future world understanding
