Q1: This week on , we’ll be talking all about the Atlantic Revolutions or maybe it’s the Age of Revolutions... Which do you use in the classroom? What works? What do you want to improve?

Replying to @bramhubbell
Q1: I usually start the era calling it Atlantic Rev and sometimes change it by the end. I agree it would make a great discussion for Ss on what is the best name by end of Period 5.

My recent experience was that I needed to lean harder into the reasons why not all of the revolutions were Enlightened/Atlantic in order for Ss to see alternative framing. @paperlesshist post on Tupac Amaru helped a lot

I don’t teach WHAP, but think about this framing in the work that I do...There is a ton of value in the Atlantic World/ARev framing. IMO Ts .(and Ss) need a lot of support conceptualizing GH/WH I’m away that is not jumping from one historical place and or time to another. 1/

Much like the term Afroeurasia, Atlantic Revolutions allows Ts and Ss to look for connections. Age of Revolutions keeps each Revolution as a separate case. 2/

I'd say that Age of Revolutions emphasizes plurality, but also pushes us to look past "Atlantic" which can be just as limiting. What about places not on the Atlantic? Are inland revolutions, not Atlantic? What about arguably revolutionary movements in the Indian Ocean World? /1

I'd also add that these discussions are fun to have with students. Semantics matter and force them to address preconceived notions. I like to play the "s" game with my students. What is better: Age of Revolution (singular) or Age of Revolutions (plural)? What's gained/lost? /2
