The exhibition 1492: AN ONGOING VOYAGE describes both pre- and post-contact America, as well as the Mediterranean world at the same time. Compelling questions are raised, such as: Who lived in the Americas before 1492? Who followed in the wake of Columbus? What was the effect of 1492 for Americans throughout the Western Hemisphere? The Library of Congress' Quincentenary exhibition addresses these questions, as well as other related themes, including fifteenth century European navigation, the myths and facts surrounding the figure of Columbus, and the differences and similarities between European and American world views at the time of contact.

Explores the last 500 years of world history. In examining this large expanse of time, students focus on four related themes: struggles between Europeans and colonized peoples; the global formation of capitalist economies and industrialization; the formation of modern states; and the development of tastes and disciplines within bourgeois society. The Opium War, the French and Haitian Revolutions, and advertising are a few of the topics discussed. Almost all readings are documents from the periods under investigation. (less)
