HIST 392 - Victorian London


Semester Offered: First Semester
Credits (Range): 4 Hours

This course thematically explores London, the “city of dreadful delights,” focusing on the urban experience over the course of the long nineteenth century. We examine the growth of Victorian London and the challenges that urbanization presented to laissez-faire liberalism. Topics include the demographic foundations of the city; the city’s aesthetics and opportunities for leisure; the netherworld of crime and prostitution; public health and housing; and the numerous plans for reform promoted throughout the era.  Enrollment limit: 12.
