Dear Student,

Welcome to Session 2 of World History: Imperialism and War. You can access all course materials for this micro-course on the website at anytime:

In Session 2 we learn about the impact of imperialism on subjugated peoples. The Great Powers of Europe might have been keen to enjoy the benefits of imperialism, but how did it impact the colonised? In this session we also explore the ideological justifications for imperialism, including the role of Social Darwinism.

Its great to see so many of you accessing the course materials! We encourage you to share your learning with your peers by posting comments on WEnotes, and tell your friends about the OERu.

Enjoy your learning,
