HI4023: SPECIAL SUBJECT: EUROPEAN CONSTITUTIONAL MONARCHIES IN THE LONG 19TH CENTURY (2017-2018)

Last modified: 27 Feb 2018 19:42


Course Overview

On the eve of the First World War Europe was a continent of monarchies. A long 19th century of revolutions, wars, growing literacy, an expanding public sphere, changes in social, economic, intellectual and technological life and imperial expansion lay behind them, but the continent’s monarchical systems had survived in surprisingly rude health. That monarchies had flourished throughout these profound transformations points to their suppleness and ingenuity. This course offers new perspectives on the political cultures of the states and societies of 19th-century Europe.

That monarchies had flourished throughout these profound transformations points to their suppleness and ingenuity. This course offers new perspectives on the political cultures of the states and societies of 19th-century Europe. It is based on recent research that engages with constitutional monarchy in the fields of media history, cultural history and transnational history.
