Description

<p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:&#34;Times New Roman&#34;,serif"><span style="font-family:&#34;Arial&#34;,sans-serif">Between 1789 and 1815 France was convulsed by revolution and then war. The tumultuous events of these years redrew the map of Europe and ushered in the view of society and the world that we take for granted today. There will be a full ten-week course on this colourful period in the Spring term, 2025.</span></span></span></p>

What can students expect?

<p><span style="font-size:12.0pt"><span style="font-family:&#34;Arial&#34;,sans-serif">This one-off course provides an overview of the key themes, events and personalities of the period. Within a chronological framework we will look at a range of issues from politics to fashion, from battles to art. No prior knowledge of this complex period is needed as this is purely an introduction to this fascinating period stuffed full of interesting characters</span></span></p>

What is the progression route?

<p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:&#34;Times New Roman&#34;,serif"><span style="font-family:&#34;Arial&#34;,sans-serif">I will be running a full ten week course on this subject on Tuesday mornings in the Spring term, 2025</span></span></span></p>
