Topics in British History, 1714-Present (HIST03)

16th May 2020

Who were the Georgians? Were the Victorians as prim and proper as conventionally portrayed? And what about the Edwardians? This course ranges across different forms of British history from 1714 to the present, taking in major political, social, economic, and cultural developments. Through the study of original material, we will analyse both everyday life and high politics, ranging from Mrs. Beeton’s famous 1861 cookbook to Prime Minister Winston Churchill’s wartime rhetoric, via pop music and political cartoons. We will address broader issues such as how the country and its people have changed over the centuries, and whether or not Britain today is an evolving success story, or in rapid decline.
