HIST 96.21 Political Thought in Colonial America

This seminar explores the ideas that constructed and deconstructed the British Empire in the Americas during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. The men and women involved in colonization thought about how to structure their own societies, but also about how to manage political, economic, and religious structures that bridged the Atlantic. This course will explore scholarly approaches to this broad process of constitution-making and equip students to undertake their own research with colonial political documents.

Open with permission of the instructor to juniors and seniors. For details concerning individual seminars consult the Department.
