Early modern Europe: society and culture c.1500-1780

The early modern period from 1500 to 1780 is a fascinating historical period to study. Beginning with the upheavals of the Reformation and ending with the Enlightenment, this was a time of fundamental social, religious and cultural change. Yet, alongside the era's many social developments, you will discover the persistence of some medieval customs and ideas. This module explores this balance of change and continuity through a variety of sources, from manuscript and printed documents such as diaries, pamphlets, legal records and ballads, to the images and objects that early modern people produced and used in their everyday life.

Changing geographies of the United Kingdom free course icon Level

Changing geographies of the United Kingdom

This module explores change in the contemporary United Kingdom and how a geographical perspective can help us to make sense of this change. At the heart of this exploration is the idea that the United Kingdom exists as a contested geographical entity, marked by shifting borders and boundaries, and patterns of local and global circulation and connection. From connections to an ancient British past to contemporary relations with Europe, you'll develop geographical skills to help you consider how places are made, re-made and understood. You'll also consider how change has occurred within Geography as a discipline.

Review: Europe Reset

In Europe Reset: New Directions for the EU, Richard Youngs looks at the issue of democracy in Europe, identifying a crisis rooted in alienation from the prevailing model of integration and proposing new initiatives for democratic participation by citizens. While the book largely focuses on democracy on the supra-national level, which may overlook the need for improvement both nationally and sub-nationally, this is a well-evidenced and reasoned proposal for reshaping the European project, writes Richard Berry.
