HSTY2666 - American Revolutions

Semester 2, 2012  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Michael Andrew McDonnell

Description

This unit will explore the series of rebellions, wars, independence movements and revolutions that rocked the Atlantic World between 1750 and 1825. Though we will focus on the American Revolution in particular, we will put that event in a larger Atlantic context, from the Native American resistance movements of the 1750s and 1760s, through to the Spanish American independence movements of the early nineteenth century. We will also explore connections with the Haitian and French Revolutions and slave rebellions more generally.
