Course Description

ONLINE: In Part 1 of this online course, we saw how London, originally founded by the Romans, became an important international city by the end of the 17th century. In Part 2, we’ll discover how the rapidly growing city absorbed immigrants, fostered cultural change, and nurtured the arts, while dealing with challenges such as crime, poverty, and war. Using slides, maps, and videos to supplement the lectures, we’ll also explore the history of the buildings, people, economy, and culture of London from the Georgians to the Swinging Sixties (1715-1970). There will be time for questions and comments during class, complemented by email and the course website. It’s not necessary to have taken Part 1 to enjoy Part 2. As Samuel Johnson said, “When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford.” | Lecture + Q&A.
