From Sarah Woodcock on March 3rd, 2020
This module encourages students to reassess the Anglo-American relationship during an era of major upheaval in both nations (1776-1877). Taking students from the American Revolution through to the end of the Reconstruction era the module will challenge learners to examine how events and ideas forced Britons and Americans to reconceptualize their relationship. Through the module, students will engage with concepts crucial in the formation of the modern world including race, ethnicity, liberty, republicanism, class, gender, manners and reform.
