Unfinished Revolutions: Uprisings in North America, 1760-1815
HIST 238
Fall 2022
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: RL&L 238

While the American Revolution dominates the historical landscape of early American history, the "Age of Revolutions" was full of uprisings in North America. This course will explore resistance movements that began in the latter part of the 18th century, most of which remain unfinished. Students will learn about pan-Indigenous uprisings against settlers, labour revolts against capital, enslaved men and women fighting for freedom, and other resistance movements that shaped (and were shaped by) the American Revolution and the fracturing of the British Empire.
