Teaching The Age of Imperialism

The Age of Imperialism

Indian tea on British tables and French sourdough at a Vietnamese lunch: these are just some of the byproducts of the Age of Imperialism. From 1800 to 1900, European nations spread their empire around the globe by invading communities and establishing trade ports and local governments. They brought their language and customs with them. They were motivated by the promise of becoming rich from international trade and the idea that their country was superior to others and had the moral duty to spread “civilization.”\n\nThe results of imperialism were not just tea in London and baguettes in Saigon. Imperialism was violent and stripped countries of their cultures, languages, and resources
