The British Industrial Revolution: During the late 18th and early 19th centuries, Britain experienced change in all aspects of life as a result of the Industrial Revolution. Scientific advances and technological innovations brought growth in agricultural and industrial production, economic expansion, and changes in living conditions. These transformations promoted a new sense of national identity and civic pride. Juxtaposed to national developments was the ever-changing form of the British Empire, with expansion of control in India and Africa framing British economic power at the start of the 20th century. This class will help students understand the impact of the industrial revolution on Britain’s role in European politics and the world. Students will visit sites relevant to the Industrial Revolution including Canary Wharf and the British Transport Museum.
