This course will explore some of the classic historiographical questions and debates through which twentieth century British history has been understood. It will then address issues such as the experience of war, the expansion of the state, the achievement of a mass democratic politics, economic decline, secularisation, decolonisation, migration, and the reshaping of class. The course will also assess the ways in which some of these processes have been revisited and reconceptualised in more recent cultural historical work.
