Victorian Culture and Society Sold Out
Tuesdays, 5:45 - 7:45 pm

Often oversimplified in popular perceptions, the Victorian period remains fascinating for its cultural achievements, social transformations, and political tensions. This course will explore such topics as Victorian values; the "condition of England" question during an age of rapid industrialization; the role of religion, including evangelicalism and the Oxford Movement; political debates between Gladstone and Disraeli; the Victorian home; women and marriage; the controversies over Darwin's theory of evolution; and Victorian art, architecture, and photography. Eight sessions, $190.

Frank A. Biletz holds a Ph.D. in history from the University of Chicago, with a primary specialization in modern British and Irish history. He has taught Newberry seminars since 1994.
