The lecture is principally open for all those interested, crucial prerequisite for participation in the proseminar are interest in the topic and openness for an interdisciplinary approach. The whole module is generally open to students also from other programmes than economics. For reasons of fairness and because of its interdisciplinary character, formal pre-requisites ("Theory of Economic Decisions 1" and "Fundamentals of Macroeconomic Activity") are thus only relevant in case of over-booking.

Aquirement of special knowledge in economic and social history, focus on the description and discussion of global developments (trends and structurs) and stimulation of critical reflection of the these developments (in history and at present).

The lecture provides an overview on world economic and social history from a global historical perspective. Departing from a critical analysis of the present, trends and structures of general developments are explained and some selected aspects (development of living standards and associated challenges, resource and energy use, demography, migration, climate change, conflicts, catastrophes, etc.) are discussed in more depth.
