This course introduces graduate students to the major issues and debates of English history from roughly 1500-1700. Major topics will include: the English Reformation; puritanism; the social order; gender and sexuality; the causes of the English Civil War; sectarian radicalism; the Glorious Revolution. While some of our time will be spent on relatively traditional political history, we will also consider issues of social and cultural change, and the course is intended to be of interest both to historians and to literary critics.
