This module will look at continental European history in the early modern period, and the expansion of Europe. The British Isles will not be a major focus of this module, but British material will be touched upon as part of broader European comparative treatment of several themes. The module will be structured into two halves: New Worlds and The Struggle for Order: the first half will focus more (but not exclusively) on the period c.1450 - c.1600, the second half more on the period c.1600 - c.1770.
