Capstone: Rebellion in the Americas This seminar examines the major interpretations of rebellion in the modern history of the Americas. Course readings and student work that culminations in an original research paper will engage in four fundamental questions: How have historical definitions of revolution and rebellion changed over time, and what explains those changes? What were the political, economic, and cultural forces that compelled ordinary people to rebel against their government and/or the status quo? Do key aspects of resistance transcend geographical boundaries as well as conceptual frameworks such as race, ethnicity, gender and class? How, in turn, have rebellions shaped the local and global societies in which they occurred?
