A 10-week course looking at the post WWI world and its revolutions – both political and cultural. £30pp.
This 10-week course looks at the post-war world in Britain, Europe, USA and the Soviet Union. The end of the First World War ushered in a period of great change and trauma throughout the world. It saw the end of many European monarchies, great changes in the status and lives of women especially in the USA and Europe. Demands for more social equality swept through Europe.
As well as sexual and political revolutions there were revolutions in literature and art; in popular culture, too, the cinema transformed ideas and cultures. The decade divided societies into warring camps: those who wished to ‘go back’ to the pre-war world and those determined to build a new one.
Set in a relaxed and friendly environment that promotes debate and discussion, with no essays or accreditation.
