History: Understanding Social Change in Modern Britain With Professor Adrian Bingham & Dr Lucy Brown From The University of Sheffield

3rd July 2019 @ 11:10 - 12:10



In this interactive webinar, Professor Adrian Bingham & Dr Lucy Brown will discuss how we should interpret the key shifts that have transformed British society since 1945, notably greater affluence and the reshaping of the class structure; the changing position of women; immigration and the increase in ethnic diversity; and the gradual acceptance of a more pluralistic society.

The session will start with a 15-20 minute presentation providing some initial interpretations of these changes, before asking participating students to respond to some previously provided questions. There will then be time for some questions and answers.

Suitable for: Year 12 students studying History and/or thinking about studying History at university.

Preparation/Pre-Reading: We will share some questions with schools in advance for students to consider. There will be an opportunity for students to discuss their responses to these questions during the event. Students can also think about questions they have about studying History at university level.

The IT Setup: The setup is similar to Skype, using a pc and webcam, although students take part as a group with the image projected on a whiteboard rather than as individuals in front of lots of pcs. Dedicated videoconferencing equipment is also compatible if available to the school. We will work with your IT department to ensure everything is set up and working prior to the event. The sessions are generally limited to 3 to 5 schools to maintain the interactive nature of the experience.

Booking a Place: This is free for schools and colleges. If you have a group of students that you would like to take part in this event, please click here 

Subject to availability we will book a place for you.
