The Age of Revolutions: Politics and Society in the 19th Century
The period from the French Revolution to the First World War is sometimes referred to as the “Long 19th Century.” During that span, several significant transformations occurred in Europe and in the Americas. Concepts of nationalism, democracy, and imperialism called into question the structure of contemporary society and led to dramatic political upheaval. This series of lectures designed for anyone 55 + will examine some of the important revolutionary movements of the 19th century, and how those movements impacted the development of modern Western society.
