Notice: On June 30, 2016, UMWiki service will be decommissioned. If you have information in UMWIki that needs to be preserved, you should make plans to move it before that date. Google Sites is anticipated to be the most popular and appropriate alternative for users because it offers a more modern and user-friendly interface and unlimited capacity. To learn more about the features of Google Sites and other alternatives, and to identify which one best fits your needs, see the University’s Website Solution Selection Guide.

Welcome to the Historpedia Web Page for PSTL 1251 Global History and Culture

Thanks for visiting this wiki web site. This will serve as our class's version of the Wikipedia, except the entries are solely focused on history-related people, events, and topics.

Click on the titles below to navigate to a separate web page established for each of forces that impact history. In addition to the influence of individual people, most historians recognize that a variety of forces impact the flow of history. The following list are commonly cited. Depending on the geographical place and time, different forces will be more prominent than others. However, careful review of history will reveal the interplay among all eight of them.

The entries in this Historpedia are produced by students enrolled in PsTL? 1251, Global History and Culture at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. Rather than produced as a research paper which is commonly assigned in other University courses, these entries are created in a style that people in the community would find accessible and useful. Internet Web links to other resources about the topic are provided at the end of each entry.

The underlined title is an active web link. To improve the appearance of pages that are printed, first click on the "printable" button in the upper right hand cordner of the page. Then select "print".

Politics and government

These systems impact society and the way that nations relate to one another. This also includes the impact of wars.

Arts and new ideas?

These systems impact society and the way that nations relate to one another. This also includes the impact of wars.

Family and society?

Changes in gender roles, class relationships/conflicts, and family relationships can have a powerful impact on history.

Religion and philosophy?

These can be powerful forces within the greater society.

Role of specific individuals?

The force of particular individual can make a difference in world history such as Churchill, Queen Elizabeth, Roosevelt, Hitler, Stalin.

Science and technology?

The introduction of new technology can have a powerful impact on economics (better sailing ships, electricity) or politics (atomic bomb).

Earth and environment?

Geography can have a powerful impact upon nations. For example, England developed uniquely as it was separated by water from others. Humans can have an impact upon the environment and in turn, be impacted by it (global warming).

Interaction and exchange?

Sometimes change occurs slowly in countries by immigration of people from other countries and nationalities. Sometimes change happens quickly through the introduction of new cultural and technological exchange from other countries.

Misc. WebSite Information?

A slight discliamer is in order. Posting of these items does not carry an endoresement by the professor or other students in the class. In nearly all instances, the course instructor finds the contributions by the students to be useful and informative.
