About the Course

In the 17th and early 18th centuries Sweden was considered to be one of the great powers of Europe. Sweden was the leading protestant state and had territorial control over parts of the Baltic region and territories that used to be member states of the Holy Roman Empire. 

This course gives you an overview of Sweden and the Nordic region in the early modern period (approx. 1500-1800). The course is based on current research.

Social, cultural, economic and political developments in the Nordic countries, Europe and the world during the early modern era changed Sweden’s role. Through seminars and lectures you will discuss key themes of Sweden and the Nordic region such as the development and legitimization of the absolute state, production of knowledge and power relations and gender relations in the early modern society.
