The Pacific Ocean covers a third of the Earth's surface and one-third of humanity lives on its shores and islands, from Russia to New Zealand and from Southeast Asia to South America. This seminar introduces students to oceanic and global history via works in Pacific history by scholars of the Pacific Islands, Asia, Australasia, Europe, and the Americas. Themes covered include cultural encounters, exploration, migration, history of science, geopolitics, and economic history.
