HISC09H3 Pirates of the Caribbean

This course examines early modern globalization through that cosmopolitan actor, the pirate. Beginning in the Caribbean, we will explore networks of capitalism, migration, empire, and nascent nationalism. By studying global phenomena through marginalized participants—pirates, maroons, rebels, and criminals—we seek alternate narratives on the modern world’s origins.
