History 321. European Imperialism, 1757-1939

This course focuses on European imperialism from the late 18th to the early 20th century. We will consider the factors that led to imperial expansion in the late 18th century and study the colonial experience from the point of view of those who lived it. We will examine how imperialism changed colonized societies; how imperialism influenced culture in Europe; and the development of resistance and opposition in the colonies.
