Hist 1112 A Very British Modern World: World History from 1500 in the UK
Professor: Dr. Ruth McClelland- Nugent
The British Empire was once described as an empire on which " the sun never sets". This global reach means that British culture had a truly global reach; this course covers world history by looking at it through a British lens. How much of the modern global world can be traced to the United Kingdom as it rose from a middling European power in the early modern period to a global empire in the late 19th century? Covered topics include the history of religious movements and other cultural products, including the English language itself, that have played a major role in modern world history. Other areas covered include the rise of global trading networks, the industrial and transportation revolutions, the rise of constitutional governments, formal and informal imperialism, and the way British culture has shaped the global English speaking world.
HIST 2111 American Roots, British Soil: US History to 1877 in the UK
Professor: Dr. Ruth McClelland-Nugent
The United States and the United Kingdom have sometimes been described as " two countries divided by a common language." Why are the roots of so much American culture in the UK? This course answers that question, examining some major developments in early U.S. history from the perspective of their British influences, with a particular emphasis on cultural history. Covered topics include the way the 17th and 18th century English politics shaped the American Revolution, the role of commerce and transatlantic trade in shaping the 18th century Atlantic world, the industrial and transportation revolutions, the controversy over slavery and the slave trade, the way the British theatre and book trade and influenced American readers, and the role of British culture in shaping American ideas about religion, science, and magic.
