The 2018 Department of History ​Beauregard King Emeriti lecture will be given by Dr. Valerie Hansen, a scholar of Chinese and World History at Yale University. Dr. Hansen’s talk is entitled “The World in the Year 1000: When Globalization Began."

Around 1000, people living in the world's different regions began to move from their home regions to other places and encountered their neighbors often for the first time. When they met them, they had to decide what to do, and their decisions then to a surprising extent resemble ours about globalization today. The talk will focus on a few of those encounters in different parts of the world.
