What you will learn

You will get an understanding of how the first half of the Twentieth Century shaped our modern world

You will learn in what way developments, events and ideas still impact us today.




Description

This course tackles some of the major themes of modernity. How did the Industrial Revolution change our world and how did our awesome powers of creation turn into the mass destruction of two world wars? How did the role of governments shift and what influence did grand theories like liberalism and communism have on our understanding of society?

The lectures in this series will be followed up by part 2, which will tackle the Cold War, decolonisation and the advent of neoliberalism & globalisation.

I think it was a great session because he was so slow about it in the best was possible because you were able to take notes and still catch up with him. :)
