The Environment and Everyday Life (HIC3316)

30 credits

This module, arranged across six weeks per term across two terms, explores the experience of the environment in everyday life in modern Britain. It asks you to investigate how ordinary British people encountered nature, ecology, and environmental change in the later-nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, and what their experiences tell us about the changing relationship to nature in that period. It is a research-based module assessing both your understanding of supplied materials and your own research. You will be encouraged to break away from the constraints academic expression to find your own writing voice.
