Course Title: Progress at last! History of Medicine - 19th and 20th Centuries
Course Number: C2226581
Course Description: Explore the epidemics and public health problems between 1800 and 1930 and the extent to which progress was/wasn't made in responding to them. Consider the impact of the First World War on developments in surgery and the improvements made in medicine in wartime. Discover the changes that occurred in the understanding of disease and the emergence of a modern profession. Assess the increased involvement of women in medicine and the changing role of the hospital. There will also be some consideration of changes in colonial and imperial medicine. The course will look at developments relevant to medicine, surgery and public health in Europe as well as Britain. Please note this is a course focused on the social history of medicine, surgery and public health and it is aimed at beginners- it will therefore seek to provide an introductory overview of the subject and the social impact- not a detailed scientific or medical explanation of the areas covered.

Course Title: Popular Music and Society: Britain and the USA after 1945
Course Number: C2226624
Course Description: The second half of the 20th century witnessed the remarkable birth of a popular culture, driven by teenage musical tastes, greater individual freedoms, increased prosperity and the widening of consumer choice generated by consumerism. Social and economic problems persisted however; continuing international tension caused by the Cold War and linked to the possibility of nuclear Armageddon, racial inequality and violence in the USA, worldwide youth protest against the Vietnam War and the possibility of revolution in Europe. How did popular music reflect this new individualised culture set in the context of such a troubled world?
