On-line only, S, Su The Silk Road represents a region of the world that has played an enormously important role in both world and Asian history. This course provides an overview of the major historical events, cultural developments and religious ideas that have occurred along the ancient Silk Road. Through examining pre-modern patterns of globalization along the Silk Road, students will gain a broad understanding of the major figures, concepts, historical movements and cultures found across South and Central Asia. Students will also learn about historical methods and the creation of historical knowledge. Civilizations do not independently invent themselves but, rather, develop as a result of cultural diffusion. The Silk Road has long served as a crossroads of culture and, thus, provides a rich example of how cultural contact and exchange, not independent innovation, is the driving force behind history.
