Hobart, Launceston, Cradle Coast
From the Italian Renaissance in the late Middle Ages to the rise of European nationalism in the nineteenth century, this unit explores the history of Early Modern Europe – a crucial period in shaping both Europe and the world we live in today. It investigates cultural, intellectual and religious change; the rise of the modern state; war and imperial rivalry; political and industrial revolutions; and the emergence of human rights and modern political culture. Case studies include the Renaissance, Reformation, the Enlightenment, the French and Industrial Revolutions.
