79-299 Conquest, Resistance, and Revolution in the Atlantic World 1400-1850
From about 1400, the continents of Europe, Africa, and North and South America became inextricably connected through a growing web of economic, social, cultural and political relations. In this course, we will examine this zone of interaction -- what historians refer to as The Atlantic World - in order to better understand the fundamental importance of slavery and the plantation complex in the history of western society. Among the themes to be explored are: transatlantic mobility and migration, gender and "transatlantic families," cultural exchanges and Old World survivals in the Americas, the "Metropole and Colony" relationship, the Plantation Complex and colonial identities, the Atlantic world contexts of the American and Haitian revolutions, and finally, the revolutionary re-making of the Atlantic world in the nineteenth-century. In this course, students will engage the field of Atlantic history through important secondary works as well as contemporary narratives that place individuals at the heart of struggles over coercion and domination and in the mist of global economic and political change.
