ENG 218 - 18-C Britain in Global Context
Eighteen-Century Britain in Global Context
Prerequisite:LAC student with T1A, T1LT, T1H or T1SS course or GER

This course offers an interdisciplinary examination of the seventeenth- and eighteenth-century cultural origins of the British empire, which was an "empire of commerce" long before its transformation into the administrative, colonial enterprise of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The course examines Britain's commercial engagements in all corners of the world-North America and the Caribbean, South America, Africa, Asia, and the Pacific- with an emphasis on understanding the impact of global trade on the British themselves and on the nations with whom they came into contact. Readings include literary and non-literary texts from the eighteenth century, as well as secondary readings drawn from the realms of literary criticism and social, economic, and cultural history.
