The French Revolution - The Rise of Nationalism

Thursday, November 21, 2019

For ages 55+ -- Presented by: John Gardella -- This program will examine the Congress of Vienna following Napoleon’s defeat in 1815; the rise of conservatism, liberalism and nationalism which lead to the revolutions of 1830, 1848 and the unification of both Germany and Italy in 1871. A group discussion will follow examining how nationalism can be a force for unifying or dividing a nation. Presenter John Gardella taught Advanced Placement World History and U.S. Government and Politics during his 25 years at Gardner High School. This program is supported in part by a grant from the Framingham Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency, and in part by the Rosanne Bergman Trust.
