    • 3.1: Introduction
      Population movement changed the societies of the old world as new cultures were established, causing massive upheaval among indigenous people throughout the Americas. People had traversed Europe and Asia for centuries, fighting wars, trading, and continually realigning borders.
    • 3.2: Akan and Kuba (1700 – 1900)
      The Akan were composed of different chiefdoms, loosely associated within an overall confederation, who lived in the area of the current country of Ghana.
    • 3.3: Rococo (1715-1789)
      Derived from the French word rocaille, Rococo is based on scrolling lines, curves, and counter curves in changing directions. A sensuous format filled with fantasies, Rococo was started in 1715 as a rebuff of Versailles's overly elaborate and gaudy yet dark Baroque style.
    • 3.4: Neoclassicism and Romanticism (1760-1860)
      Neoclassicism and Romanticism crossed the late 18th and 19th centuries, developing into opposing styles. Neoclassicism developed first after the excesses of the Rococo and Baroque periods, bringing a more classical restraint and resurgence of Greek influence.
    • 3.5: Ukiyo-e (1636 - 1911)
      In 1615, the Tokugawa clan consolidated their power in Japan. It moved the central government to Edo (modern Tokyo), the Edo period (also known as the Tokugawa period), and relative peace for the next 250 years.
    • 3.6: Mexican Baroque (Late 15th century - 1868)
      The devastating decline of the Indigenous people still occurred throughout the seventeenth century. Governmental conflicts developed among the Spanish Crown, the clergy, and the Criollos (European descent born in the Americas).
    • 3.7: American Colonial (1700 – 1800s)
      When the Europeans started to colonize North America, the weather and topography were familiar, a new and unspoiled land where they could begin a different life under new religious laws and governments.
