Learning objectives
The course provides the broad outlines of economic history, both from a methodological point of view and in terms of themes, interpretive categories and language specific to the discipline, between the early-modern and modern ages.
Expected learning outcomes
By the end of the course, students will have acquired the ability to examine global economic problems by tracing their early-modern and modern historical roots and employing the fundamental categories of economic theory (no previous economic or mathematical skills are required). They will also be able to place the most representative economic and business events and initiatives in their chronological and geographical contexts. The student will be able to use language tools(language properties, correct specific lexicon) to express, in a clear and effective form, to define concepts of an economic, political, social and institutional nature; they will be able to read critically historiographical works and assess the main quantitative sources.
These skills will be acquired through a direct and continuous meeting with the instructor in the classroom. Educational tools will be made available on Ariel by the instructor for attending students.
Students opting not to attend the lessons will be able to make use of the educational tools provided by the instructor on Ariel, deepen their knowledge of main topics through special readings indicated in the exam program for non-attending and if desired (after reading the exam program) contact the instructor both by email and during office hours.
