Between the Wars - an East Midlands Focus

Ref: C2337903

Among the topics that the course will be covering will be the impact of the aftermath of the Great War on our local area including the devastating flu pandemic of 1918, the coming of motorised transport and its effects on local economic and social life and town planning, the levelling off in the expansion of Leicester's population with recognition in the form of its acquisition of University and City status, the continuing problem of working class housing and the beginning of slum clearance and council housing and the first estates, and the effects of alternate decades of "boom" and "bust" on the population of town and county. We will be studying all of these against the background of national and international inter-war events of these two turbulent decades.
