Revolutions, Ideas and Media

Please note: this is archived course information from 2023 for POLITICS 740.


Revolutions are politics writ large, moments when political reality and political aspirations collide and erupt in often epochal transformations. This course explores the idea, and the realities, of historical and modern revolutions as sources of insight into politics and societal change, with particular attention to the key role of 'the people', public opinion and the media.

For full course information see the Digital Course Outline for POLITICS 740.
