The history of Europe from 1350 to 1789. For a long time, Early Modern Europe has been glorified as a time of ?renaissances,? scientific and religious ?revolutions,? and overall ?Enlightenment.? After all, this period saw the print revolution, tremendous developments in art-making, and huge transformations in civic culture. But the early modern world also created systems of race, slavery, capitalism, and colonialism that would last for centuries. This class will determine how (and whether) we can reconcile these two polarities.
