HIST7461: Gender in Modern British History, c.1850-1939

Dr Clare Makepeace

This undergraduate 'half' module introduces students to the study of gender in modern British history. The module examines how the gender order has changed from the mid-nineteenth century to the eve of the Second World War, in order to illuminate wider issues of power. It covers key events and periods when the gender order was thrown into sharp relief, such as the campaigns around suffrage and prostitution, the experience of war and changing expectations and behaviours in regards to sexuality. The module focuses both on masculinities and femininities. It aims to provide students with an understanding of gender as an important aspect of historical explanation. The module is delivered in a two hour seminar format, taught both in term one and term two.
