  • Overview

    This module examines a number of the key political and social and developments in Ireland during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries within a broadly chronological approach, commencing with the tumultuous 1641 Rebellion and ending with the beginnings of Ireland under the Union. The principal political themes dealt include Confederate Ireland and the Wars of the Three Kingdoms; the Cromwellian land settlements; the Jacobite/Williamite wars and the impact of the American and French revolutions on Irish politics. Social and economic themes include elite and popular rebellion in Ireland; the significance of death and dying in early modern Irish society and the reshaping of eighteenth-century society and economy. Throughout the module developments in Ireland will be situated in their wider British, European, Atlantic and imperial contexts.
