*Ce cours comporte trois programmes obligatoires : Victorianism, Ireland, UK in the World

Victorianism (L. Machet & R. Davis)

This course will start with a panorama of Victorian Britain, focusing on its social history and

showing how the Victorians grappled with a changing world. The second half of the course will study the political developments in the Victorian era with a particular focus on the changing role of the monarchy, and the ways this was being contested, the decline of the aristocracy and their political influence, the growth of democracy and the tensions this brought, and the emergence of the Labour movement.


Ireland (M. Jones)

In the first half of the semester, this course will take a brief look at the history of Ireland and the story of Irish independence and will then focus on Ireland today with an emphasis on nation building, culture and commemoration.


The UK in the World

This part of the course will focus on the general theme of the internationalisation of Britain over the past fifty years. End of Empire and the after effects of Empire on British identities; Europeanization of Britain (economy, trade, culture, sport...) and American cultural influences... And consider those in Britain resisting such pressures – antiimmigration, Little Englander sentiments, the Brexit debate and the idea of Britain’s decline.
