About this course:

The social, cultural, economic, and political changes that occurred in North America before 1750 comprised a dynamic era in American history. In this course, we trace developments during the colonial period beginning with indigenous North America through European settlement and migration. We explore servitude and slavery, race and gender, popular religious and material cultures, as well as colonial economics and politics. We then discuss if and how the British colonies were becoming more or less like Great Britain in the decades prior to the American Revolution, and how the concept of sovereignty evolved on American soil.
