Dr. J.R. McNeill teaches world history, environmental history and international history at Georgetown University. In this occasional paper, McNeill discusses why it is important to study history and global studies and three different models used when teaching world history. Then Dr. McNeil delves into one of those models, “the human web”, covering the growth of civilization throughout the past 6,000 years and what that means for historical perspectives on global studies.
