The Age of Atlantic Revolutions

Professor Mark Hanna

This lecture explores the interrelationship between the American, French, and Haitian Revolutions. We will place each of these momentous historical events into a broad global context while comparing their social and cultural impacts on world history. The Louisiana Purchase of 1803, for example, was a direct consequence of Napoleon's failure to put down the revolt in Saint-Domingue (later Haiti).

Instructor: Mark Hanna is Associate Professor of History and Associate Director of the Institute of Arts and Humanities at UC San Diego. He is Honorary Curator of the Hill Collection of Pacific Voyages, and is the Robert and Laura Kyle Endowed Chair in Maritime History, San Diego Maritime Museum. His book, Pirate Nests and the Rise of the British Empire, 1570-1740, is widely acclaimed.
