HOI 230 - Revolutions

3.00 credit hours
A focus on the concept of revolution, broadly defined. It will consider different ways of defining “revolution” and how the term can be used. It will consider political revolutions, intellectual revolutions, artistic revolutions and technological revolutions, among others between 1800 and 2000. In the process, we will explore dramatic shifts in perception, including science, gender and empire. We will question whether revolution is specific to the “modern” era, and what “modernity” can mean. Lastly, as we think about revolutions, we will analyze how power works in different contexts, such as in gender relations, class relations and race relations. Honors course.
