The sketches published in the Great Migration volumes have generally not probed too deeply into the backgrounds of the seventeenth-century immigrants. They may identify where each immigrant lived at the time of migration, but not why they chose to leave England. It may be surprising to learn that the motivations of many of these early immigrants can be traced back a number of generations, to the early days of the English Reformation.
In this online course, Robert Charles Anderson, FASG, Director of the Great Migration Study Project, will explore these deep roots of the Puritan migration to New England. The first two lectures will set the background for the English Reformation and the remaining lectures will cover the century following the appearance of that movement, approximately one decade at a time. Each lecture will conclude with a prospective look at how these events would later affect the migrations of the 1620s and 1630s.
This course includes five two-hour classes (each discussing three lecture topics); exclusive access to a dynamic course page with handouts, recordings of each presentation, timelines, and more; and in-depth Q&A sessions with the instructor. If you are unable to attend any or all of the live broadcasts, please note that all lectures will be recorded and posted to the course page so that participants may review the material according to their own schedule. Students have access to the course page until 12/31/2014.
