HIST 259 - Special Topics in European History

Content of this course will vary with instructor. For Fall 2014 the title of the course is From Miners to Monarchs:  the British Class System.  This course will examine the issue of class in Britain from the early modern period to the present day.  It will explore the economic, social, cultural, intellectual, and political impacts and influences of class and the social order.  Defining the social order has been a central feature of British politics, literature, and daily life for hundreds of years.  Changing understandings of this social order have inspired the greatest British thinkers and artists; formed the boundaries of citizenship and political powers; built cities and communities; and fundamentally shaped the everyday lives of the British people.


May be repeatable for credit.
