Ireland in The Atlantic World, 1600-1850

SAME AS G58.1425 & G65.1423.

Ireland was a conspicuous presence in the Atlantic World of the 17th and 18th centuries. Irish men and women figured in nearly every aspect of the cultural, economic, political, and religious interplay that shaped early-modern Atlantic societies. In a wide-ranging and multi-disciplined inquiry (introducing recently discovered archival sources), this seminar will explore the significance of Irish involvements in the larger Atlantic World (maritime Europe, West Africa, and the Americas), as well as the ways in which Ireland responded to—and was affected by— such encounters.
