HIST 227 A Century of Revolutions: Europe, 1789-1917

Last offered Fall 2013

This course introduces students to the era of the European domination of the world, a time of revolutionary excitement and fervor, of war and travesty, of profound social and economic change, and of great intellectual ferment. Topics include the French and Russian Revolutions, the Revolutions of 1830 and 1848, the Industrial Revolution, German and Italian Unification, European imperialist expansion, the origins of World War I, and the environmental impact of 19th century Europeans on the world. With an eye toward exploring the origins of today's complex attitudes toward class, race, ethnicity, and gender, the course will also focus on Marxism, racism, anti-Semitism, and feminism in the nineteenth century.
