Come learn about the Advanced Studies in England program in Bath, England! Semester students take four courses in subjects such as Art and Art History, Classics, Creative Writing, English Literature, Government, History, Philosophy, Theatre, Women's & Gender Studies. Students also have the option to replace one course with an internship or an Oxford tutorial.In Fall 2019, F&M Professor Ted Pearson will be a visiting professor teaching the history course "THE ATLANTIC WORLD, 1688-1807: EMPIRE, REVOLUTION AND ABOLITION". This course explores the key moments in the history of the Atlantic World during the “long” eighteenth century. Beginning with the expansion and consolidation of the plantation complex of the Caribbean and the southern colonies of British North America and the rise of the Atlantic slave trade, we will then turn to the three major revolutions that convulsed the region in the last half of the century. Students will spend several weeks looking at the revolutions in colonial America and in France before turning to events on Saint Domingue (Haiti) in the 1790s. The course concludes by examining the movement to abolish the slave trade in Britain and the rise of radical politics in England during the era of the Napoleonic Wars.
