I love learning about the industrial revolution because:
a. blueberry fangirl what uppp
b. my dad, who studied engineering at university, was obsessed with steam trains and so when I was a little girl he told me all about the creation of the steam engine with an enthusiasm I only otherwise saw when he talked about football or the south of France
This video also touches on the role of international market creation in the industrial revolution, which is a bit fascinating really. Bah I love Crash Course.
We would like to take the opportunity to apologise for historically being dicks in both our actions and expression of those actions (obsessive categorisation/classification, emphasis on sacred texts based on a Christian model, spreading silly ideas etc.) . Blame the men.
Britain & our historical bias (& colonialism).
[also this video is great, I know I talk about Vassar all the time but my Religions of Asia course there was bossss. I wrote an essay on Ashoka and an essay on purity/the caste system/the Ganges, etc. So yeah. Variety in education is the best. If you don’t get the chance to have a liberal arts education experience/Flexible Combined Honours then at the very least watch CrashCourse and SciShow because they’re fab]
