Online Course Description
In this seminar we'll travel through the history of Western civilisation. From Egypt we'll travel to Greece, before entering the Roman era where we'll meet the Egyptians again.
While Western Europe is experiencing its "dark ages", we'll look at the development of the Arab world, but don't worry: we won't forget William the Conqueror and Charlemagne.
In Northern Italy, we'll experience the start of the renaissance before we start to conquer the rest of the world, and we'll indulge in philosophers during the age of enlightenment, while we enslave entire peoples at the same time.
Finally, we look at how the industrial revolution and the ongoing democratisation of western societies through new communication technologies, along with two world wars and the downfall of Christianity brought us to where we are today: the age of Donald Trump

If you imagine historians to be old, dull and grey, studying books behind a big old desk, then I'm sorry to disappoint you.
I'm not old yet.
I love history, because I want to know why the world is as it is today. Why is the world ruled primarily by white men? Why are we all so fond of killing each other? Why is Donald Trump president?
Apart from the big questions, I might like history's side notes even more. I'm especially pleased when I find some interesting little piece of knowledge, like that the boss of the Ottoman sultan's harem was a black eunuch, and that this guy actually wielded quite a lot of power, in one of the greatest empires in the history of mankind.
