The Industrialization Saga Continues

Over the next week, my students will be writing their first papers for me. I'm geeked about reading them because the professor I'm teaching with came up with a super-cool paper topic: How does Britain become "an industrial society" by the mid-nineteenth century, and how does this change the lives of ordinary people? It is a huge question. After all, everything we have covered so far in the course, from empire to enclosure, could be said to have contributed to industrialization. The challenge will be covering it all in 2-3 pages!
