Course Title: Footsteps through the history of our streets
Course Number: C2226588
Course Description: Investigate the Urban History of England from the mid Anglo-Saxon period to the 1950s, with some focus on Wales and Scotland. Learn how changes were different depending on the size and nature of the settlement. Focus particularly on port towns and the ways they changed over time. Understand the development of health and leisure resorts of 1700-1840 and the emerging seaside resorts of the Victorian age. Look at what the industrialising towns of 1700- 1840 were like and how this changed between 1840 and 1950. Discover the Victorian approach to the running of towns and cities. Identify changes in the built environment and housing. Please note this is an introductory course aimed at beginners to the subject- seeking to cover a wide time period, range of topics and geographical area in an introductory level of detail- this course is not suitable for students that already have a deep level of knowledge of this subject.

Course Title: The Jazz Century - Cakewalk to Culture
Course Number: C2226634
Course Description: A decade-by-decade jazz journey, from 1900 to 1999, with guided commentary/discussion and numerous musical examples. From the dance halls and sporting houses of New Orleans to Carnegie Hall and the greatest concert stages around the world, jazz has travelled far both geographically and culturally. Its exponents have reflected the social realities of life in the USA and the turbulence of major changes in that society to produce a stunning diversity of style and expression. America's greatest indigenous musical form, but soon to be a World Music, who were the men and women behind the development of jazz and what did they contribute? What would jazz become by the end of the twentieth century? This course celebrates some of the many pioneers who have kept us dancing and enriched our lives.
