Collapse? Balancing Growth with Scarcity  (BA History)
Department of History and Art History, Utrecht University
Period 3: 2011, 2012, 2013
The transition from pre-industrial to industrial societies has significantly increased the impact of human societies on the environment. However, the tensed relation between man and the environment is not just a recent phenomenon. For thousands of years human societies have exploited limited natural resources to produce food and obtain fuel, fibres and building materials. This course explores specific historical cases as well as long-term global developments in the relation between people and the environment.

Wealth and Poverty in the Americas  (MA History)
Department of History and Art History, Utrecht University
Period 2-3: 2010, 2011
The repressive and extractive features of Spanish colonial rule, in contrast to the cooperative and liberal features of British colonial rule, have long been taken as the conventional explanation for the reversal of fortune in the American hemisphere. In recent years this view has been attacked by scholars arguing that Spanish institutions were different, but not necessarily inferior, nor bad for growth. In this research seminar students review the academic debate, the hypotheses and the available evidence to gain a deeper understanding of the historical determinants of global inequality.
