  • Overview

    The ?long eighteenth-century? that led from Louis XIV to Napoleon was an age of unprecedented cultural and political change. In order to understand the nature and extent of this change, this course charts the emergence of new ways of thinking about science, society and the self during the Enlightenment and explores how these ideas contributed to reshaping the state during the Revolutionary crisis that convulsed Europe from 1789 on. By examining the evolution of attitudes towards gender, death and family life, the course also explores how European perceptions of private life and popular culture changed over the course of the eighteenth-century.
