Primary Instructor:

This class is an introductory survey of the history of England from ancient times to the Glorious Revolution of 1688. Introductory but not simplified: it assumes no prior knowledge of the subject but strives to engage the complexities and challenges of studying a nation and period with a famously excellent and contentious tradition of historical writing.

It focuses on the major events in English history in the Middle Ages and era of the Tudor and Stuart monarchs. The emphasis will necessarily be on political and religious developments, but aspects of social and economic history will also be covered. At the end of the term students should have a good grasp on the trajectory of English history as the nation formed and evolved into a medieval and then an early modern polity and society.

There will be a mid-term and a final. In addition, there will also be two short papers on assigned topics.

Required readings are available for purchase at Shaman Drum Bookshop.
