A better understanding of the worldwide process of industrialization with regard to its causes, its progress and its results, focusing in particular on the differences in chronology and regional patterns.

 

Following a general introduction into the central role that industrialization has played in modern economic development, the lecture will discuss the traditional explanations for its chronological and regional differences before a new theory will be presented based on empirical evidence and illustrated by a comparison of all five continents ranging from Europe and the Americas to Africa, Asia and Oceania.

 

With the help of the literature cited below, which as the students‘ workload is to be read and reflected upon, the contents and the goals of the lecture will be elaborated and discussed in an exchange of thoughts and comments between students and lecturer.
