War, Revolution, and Culture: Trans-Atlantic Perspectives, 1750−1850

The wars and revolutions between 1750 and 1850 mark our lives, national politics, and culture to this day. Many key beliefs in Europe and the Americas regarding society, gender, and politics were forged in the fires of the American, French, and Haitian Revolutions, the Mexican War of Independence, the Napoleonic Wars, and the European Revolutions of 1830 and 1848. Through a transdisciplinary approach to this complex and influential nexus of history, literature, and art, you can study literature and art that reflected these wars and revolutions; music that provided rousing sounds for a marching army; and the writings of Beaumarchais, Jefferson, and Voltaire, who provided the spark to the revolutionary powder keg.
