This unit explores the cultural, diplomatic, military and scientific journeys that defined eighteenth and early nineteenth century European thought. We study expeditions made by people such as Cook in the Pacific, Humbolt in Latin America, Macartney in China, Napoleon in Egypt and Mary Wollstonecraft in Scandinavia. We consider how these journeys promoted artistic, philosophical, political, scientific and technological change. Particular attention will be paid to contemporary responses through journalism, art exhibitions, theatrical performances, scientific advances, museum displays and fashion.
