Course aim

Through an in-depth study of the vital contributions of Indian, Chinese, Islamic and African civilisations to Western civilisation, the course aims to demonstrate civilizational interconnectedness.

Course content

In this course, students will gain an understanding of the vital contributions of Indian, Chinese, Islamic and African civilisations to Western civilisation. The course will provide students with a counter-narrative to the ethnocentric bias of mainstream accounts of the rise of the West. Students will gain an understanding of how the East played a substantial role in the story of Western world history. Students will also learn about how the assimilation of Eastern inventions (such as science and technology) influenced the rise of the West. This course focuses on the interconnectedness of Eastern and Western civilisations in ways that can enhance students’ understanding and appreciation of the ‘Other.’
