HIST 061. From the Ocean to the River: The Indus and the Ganges in Global History

How would our picture of global history change if we shifted the central unit from oceans to rivers? In this course, we will explore this question from multiple angles, centering our inquiry around a set of questions raised by the intertwined histories of the Indus and Mississippi rivers in the mid-19th century. Literary sources, works of cinema and primary sources will enrich our inquiry.
