Brief description

This module will use the Revolutions of 1848 as the basis for a discussion of a number of themes including revolution and counter-revolution, to consider the workings of a range of political systems, the development of a variety of ideologies and the evolution of state-society inter-relationships. Students will be encouraged to develop the capacity to understand and analyse conflicting interpretations and perspectives, to understand the ways in which historians have used source materials and developed hypotheses, to understand the relationship between short-term and long-term processes of change and to present information in a clear and intelligible manner through essays and seminar presentations.
