Welcome to The World of the Atlantic with Lisa Edwards

In this course, we will consider the idea and the history of the Atlantic World. To what degree have people, things, and ideas around the Atlantic been influenced by their contact with each other? How have the people of Europe, Africa, and the Americas understood and traveled around the Atlantic Ocean over the past several centuries? How have historians defined the Atlantic World? What are the legacies of the history of the Atlantic World, and how do they affect our lives today?
