The goal of this course will be to examine, in both breadth and depth, the history of Europe between roughly 1715 (the death of Louis XVI) and 1815 (the fall of Napoleon). Broad themes to be covered include old regime Europe, European religiosity and secularism, the Enlightenment, the development of public opinion, the rise of Prussia, the industrial revolution in Britain and the continent, mercantilism, and trends in the arts. Students will be expected to attend lectures, participate in class discussion, write two exams, read and discuss a number of primary and secondary sources, submit weekly opinion papers, and complete a term paper on an 18th-century European topic.
