Welcome to HIS 270-01: Making the Modern World: Europe in the 19th Century! I’m glad to be taking this journey with you this semester. This WordPress site will be our home base for all of the remote parts of this class. Here, you can find the Syllabus, all assigned Reading & Viewing materials, the Discussion Leadership schedule, assignments, and writing resources. Most importantly, this is the home of our blog, through which we will work together to shape our intellectual journey. Please see the syllabus for details, and feel free to ask me if you have any questions. You can always reach me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Let’s get modernizing!
