Industrialization & Global Integration 1750–1900

From out of the early modern period, we now enter a period characterized by the difficult questions that came to the forefront of the people who lived through an era of incredible change. As traditional societies gave way to more dynamic cultures, with the kingdoms of Europe being increasingly replaced by Empires with a truly global focus, the people caught up in this expansion sought to explain their place in this new world. They would ask the questions that, at their heart, challenged the traditional forms of authority in society: Employer, King, and God

Industrialization & Global Integration 1750–1900

These questions, along with many others, made this period one of the most explosive in history. Societies would be powered to new heights by the ingenuity of industrialization whilst they would also crumble to revolution and internal bloodshed. Kings and queens would be killed, and scientists, explorers and philosophers, would challenge ideas that would shake age-old beliefs to their core. From out of this climate of change and challenge we will begin to see the foundations of our modern world and our modern ways of thinking about people and our place in society.
