2020/21 Courses

Course Title: Plants, Politics and Economics
Course Number: C2227780
Course Description: Plants have, over history, had a significant cultural, economic and political impact. In this course we will look at ten different plants and see how the development and use of them has influenced economic and political development. We depend on plants to provide basic human needs such as food, clothing, shelter and even health care, but they are also important raw materials for a broad range of industrial processes. Historically it could be argued that the development of plants has had a more significant impact on society and economic development than most wars and revolutions. The use, and some would say, exploitation of plants provides us with a window on the economic development of society over time.

Course Title: Monarchy, the story of the English crown from 1485 to the twentieth century
Course Number: C2227779
Course Description: From the fifteenth century to the present day the English (later British) monarchy has taken many different forms, some very successful, some quite disastrous. This course considers each monarch's work against the challenges and opportunities of their own time and asks what kind of monarchy it was as well as how successful. In so doing we will gain a particular insight into the issues and history of the time within which each monarch operated.
