Summer Session 2020
Revolutions have played a central role in the making of the modern world. From the revolutions in France, America and Haiti in the late 18th century to those in North Africa and the Middle East in 2011, revolutions have been central to debates about war and peace, justice and order, intervention and sovereignty, and more. This course explores both the theory and practice of revolutions, teasing out their effects and examining the prospects for revolutionary change in the contemporary world. During the course, students will learn how to make informed judgments about the ways in which revolutions have impacted on core features of the international system. Key questions we will discuss include: How much do revolutions change the societies in which they take place – and the wider world? Are revolutions best understood through the perspective of participants on the ground or through the broader symbolic, economic, and political field? And what are the prospects for revolution in the contemporary world?
