LIBERTY AND SLAVERY IN COLONIAL BRITISH AMERICA AND
THE EARLY UNITED STATES

This course explores ideas and practices of liberty and slavery in colonial British America, the American Revolution, and the early United States, culminating with the abolition of the slave trade in Britain in 1807 and the US in 1808. Students will thus examine the origins of American ideas of liberty in medieval and early modern England and Britain, how those ideas were implemented (or not) in colonial America, the fight to retain American liberties during the American Revolution, and how ideas about liberty changed over time. The course will also examine the origins and development of enslavement in British America, how the enslaved coped by developing their own cultures and via resistance and rebellion, and how African Americans made (or did not make) the American Revolution work for them. Students will also examine the relationship between liberty and slavery. Did they co-exist in contradiction to one another? Or did ideas and practices of liberty shape the nature of slavery, and did ideas of race and practices of the slavery affect the nature of liberty?
This course will be helpful for students of the history of ideas, politics, society, culture, and law, as well for students of language because of a heavy emphasis on document reading.
