Course Title: Parliament 2
Course Number: C2228317
Course Description: By 1700 Parliament was a secure part of the English constitution but what role in government it would play, what shape its relationship to the crown, who would vote in the Commons elections (and how often they would occur), how the commons related to the Lords ; all were unclear. These and the roles of Prime Minister an Official opposition and much more we regard as commonplace will be explored over this course.

Course Title: Plants, Politics and Economics
Course Number: C2228187
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.
