OXF 300 - Selected Topics in British Culture

Credits: 4


This course examines selective themes from the British past and the traces they have left in present day Britain. Students explore how events, people, and ideas from the past are remembered, forgotten, and misremembered in literature, politics, philosophy, religion, art and architecture, and the material landscape, and investigate the meaning, use, and abuse of the past. 

Students attend lectures, viewings, and field trips, but spend most of their time doing independent study to produce detailed essays.

 

Corequisite(s): Available only to students participating in the BestSemester Scholars’ Semester in Oxford Program.
