Course description

How did Britain go from sitting atop the world's greatest Empire in 1901 to Brexit in 2020 and into a prolonged economic and political slide through 2022? Using the monarchy as our lens, we analyze Britain's tumultuous twentieth and twenty-first centuries with a focus on two world wars, imperial and economic decline, modern transformations and social upheaval, as well as abdication, regnal transitions, and various royal scandals. Films and television series to be screened include Downton Abbey, The King's Speech, The Crown, The Queen, and documentary footage.
