Investigating the Victorians

An on-line distance learning course with the Oxford University Deartment for Continuing Education (OUDCE): 10 weeks, every term (i.e. three times a year). I teach alternate terms, the other terms being taught by Dr Simon Wenham.

In the nineteenth century Britain led the world in the dramatic process of industrialisation but the consequences for British society were far-reaching. How were ordinary people affected by these developments? This course aims to investigate the lives of the Victorian people, both rich and poor, in order to gain an understanding of the key issues that transformed Britain during this period.
