HIST 322 The Enlightenment and Revolution

The course covers the evolution of democratic practices in western civilization after 1517, and the democratic political revolutions that followed in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Secondary, related topics are the economic and social transformations that occurred after 1750, in rough proximity to the political revolutions: the early Industrial Revolution, the extension of a global economy, and the rise of large-scale urban manufacturing cultures.
