Welcome to Pirates of the Caribbean
INTD 1784 and INTD 1820
Pirates of the Caribbean:
The British and their American colonists fought a war on terror in the 1720s, ending the so-called “Golden Age” of piracy.
· Did pirates really bury their treasure and walk the plank?
In this class we will watch films on Hollywood’s portrayal of piracy, dip into the scholarly literature on the historical reality of it, and make a website on some aspect of maritime piracy.
Mondays and Wednesdays 9-9:50 AM Buckley Honors Classroom
