HIS 235 - Britain in the Age of Enlightenment

4 credits (Fall or Spring)
This course examines the dramatic transformations that took place in the British world during the “long eighteenth century” (1688-1832), ushering in new forms of industry and imperialism, family life and socialbility, work and leisure, literature and science, politics and civil society. Students will explore how these transformations helped create many of the patterns of our modern world while also examining the new spaces and settings–such as the coffeehouse or the laboratory–in which they unfolded.

Prerequisite: HIS 100  or second-year standing.
Note: Plus-2 option available. Not offered every year.
Instructor: Guenther
