Conquest and Colonization in the English Atlantic World

Professor Wayne Lee
Approach: HS. History Elective Credit* (*this course will also be accepted as elective credit fo the Curriculum in Peace, War, and Defence
IDEAs in Action: FC-Power or FC-Past (awaiting approval)

This course explores conquest process in the English medieval and Atlantic worlds, and then immerses students in the primary sources of the English and Native American experience of colonization and exploration in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. This is very much a course about mentality rather than events or social history. It is designed to query the mindset of the English who appeared on the eastern seaboard of North America, and how they understood the land and people they found, and also how those Native Americans came to understand them. In general, for each region we will look at primary materials first (or literary representations of the experience), using the sources to decode how the participants were thinking and interpreting their experiences.
