Hours & Credits
OverviewRiots and rebellions have been the means for popular protests against injustices, to right wrongs, and influence political events. Peasants in medieval England, African slaves and indigenous peoples in the New World, mariners in pre-modern Europe, and convicted felons in the Australain colonies, all had rebellions. Some - such as the American colonists' rebellions agains imperial Spain and England - bacame major revolutions with lasting national consequences. Others were shortlived uprisings in the face of overwhelming change. Exploring the circumstances surrounding selected rebellions, students study the dynamcis of change and continuity in the transformation of pre-industrial communities into the modern industrial world.
