DESCRIPTION

Fernand Braudel (1902-1985) and the Annales School pioneered a type of history that explored the conditions of everyday life rather than political and diplomatic history. They placed particular emphasis on the food, fashion and clothing, social customs, mental world, and family life and housing of ordinary people. Braudel also looked at micro-level histories within the context of the macro picture by examining the history of climate, power and technological factors. These environmental imperatives have, if anything, even more importance today. The impact of the Annales School on social and economic history made its largest contribution to our understanding of the pre-industrial world. This unit will move beyond 1800 to consider what happened to the slow and effects of space, climate and technology on the actions of human beings as a consumer and industrial revolution took place broadly considering the period from 1600-2000. The importance of 'industriousness' has been stressed by historian Jan de Vries to signify a quickening of pace. How do ordinary people make local economies work? What constraints and opportunities do local ecology and geography provide? Can we find some applicability of this sort of analysis to the contemporary developing world?
