Think back when you were young, was the world different? What sort of technology was there at the time of your earliest memories? What was going on in the social activity? Where their social movements at the time? What did inequality look like between sex, race, gender, income, etc.? Chances are the world is different now from the time you remember as a child. For some of us not as much as others. Whether your 90 or 20 social change has happened, but that is just a pin drop in the history of humans. Think about what life was like tens of thousands of years ago, and how society and our social aspects have changed.
This course is designed to look at our history as humans from both a macro and micro level. Its goal is to produce an overall knowledge of how humans lived in ancient times to now and to understand the forces that influenced both small and large scale social changes.
