EHIS 220 War and Society in Modern Britain
This course is a thematic exploration of the impact of war on British society throughout the twentieth century. Students will study the impact of the Boer War, the First and Second World Wars and the Falklands conflict on Britain. Attention will be paid to how war affected British culture, politics, gender and class relations as well as Britain’s economy and relationship with its Empire. A special theme will be the interaction of war and social change. Students will consider how Britain’s great power status, the evolution of the welfare state, as well as its level of democratization, and the position of trade unions were shaped by wartime conflict in the twentieth century.
