HIST 262 - BRITAIN FROM 1800 TO THE PRESENT
A survey course organized chronologically through a group of topics in the social and cultural history of Great Britain and, to some extent, of its empire, from industrialization to the present. We will be looking at the English in relation to the other peoples of the British Isles--Welsh, Scottish, Irish--and to its population of immigrants from abroad. Issues emphasized are: the creation of an "English" national identity, the significance of Ireland in British politics, the impact of the Empire in metropolitan Britain, and family and gender issues that have shaped modern Britain: protection of children, manliness, the genteel home, and women's rights, among them.
