George III: the women in his life View details

The long reign of George III (1760-1820) is one of the transforming periods of British history. Until his final descent into madness, the king played an important role in politics and culture, and in this role, he was surrounded by influential and strong-minded women - his mother, his wife, his sister, his daughters, his daughter-in-law and his granddaughter. A study of the lives of these Hanoverian princesses provides fresh insights into court culture, gender politics and European marriage diplomacy.

The Union of Britain and Ireland 1800-1801 View details

The Act of Union passed in January 1801 was intended to solve "the Irish question" once and for all but failed, largely because of a failure to keep promises of Catholic emancipation. This course will look at some of the significant events in Ireland from Tudor times, when Protestantism became accepted by the majority in England but not by the majority of Irish people, who remained firmly Catholic despite persecution. We'll examine the creation of the Society of United Irishmen in the 18th century and how this organisation aimed to make Ireland an independent republic for people of both Protestant and Catholic faiths, but how the Society's alliance with France influenced the British government to introduce the Act of Union. We'll also see how Catholic emancipation, promised as part of the Act, was delayed by powerful Protestants with the support of King George III, and how this delay had important consequences for the future, some of which are still being felt today.
