  10. British Fiction of the 40s and 50s: matters of life, death and peace
    Evening
    Course start date:  Thu 3 Oct 2024

    Location on this date:  Online

    Tutors:  William Brady
    British Writers of the 1940s contended with a series of hitherto unimaginable challenges, dilemmas and paradoxes. From living in a climate of ‘total war’ to grappling with a disorienting rush of social and cultural change, the literature of the period reflects, often fragmentedly, a time of hope, anxiety and upheaval. We will explore a range of texts, spanning the gothic, the semi-autobiographical, the escapist and elegiac with a range of voices, including Virginia Woolf, Roald Dahl, Elizabeth Bowen, and Terrence Rattigan under discussion.

    Tutors:  Henry Martin
    Across six weeks, students will learn about the careers and lives of six important taste-makers and the artists and movements they encouraged, and the society they functioned within. These women and their stories are largely overlooked in most accounts of art history, buried in archives or seen as second to the artists and movements they supported. This blind-spot by art historians will also be explored, examining who decides what art history is and why.
