Module code: HST6372

Credits: 15
Semester: SEM 2

Module Convenor: Dr Maurizio Isabella

The 1848 revolutions marked the birth of political modernity in Europe, inaugurating working class consciousness and giving birth to feminism. Democracy and socialism were the product of such political experiences. They also represented the last pan-European revolutionary moment in history, one in which the entire continent experienced radical change, from Sicily to Ireland. This QMUL Model module will analyse the causes of this revolutionary wave, its political culture and impact on societies as well as its enduring legacies.
