|Subject Overview:|| |
This subject explores changing paradigms in world history with particular reference to Asia. Hegel supposed that China and India lay outside the domain of world history, waiting to be drawn into it by a youthful and vigorous Europe, whose rise marked the inexorable progress of Reason. In this subject, we shall reflect on how globalisation theory and postcolonialism in the post-Cold War era have produced a revisionist, post-Hegelian paradigm in world history. This revisionism has involved reconfiguring Asia's historical place, particularly but not only in histories of the Early Modern World.
