Time in a Frame- History

Ref: C2523188

The course will cover a selected range of images which encapsulate a period or some aspect of a period of history. They will be considered in their own right as pieces of art or historical illustration but will also be used to access the wider context from which they have come. They will be approached chronologically. Some of the images will be chosen from British history and some from European history. The methods employed will include segmented powerpoint presentations and discussion of the themes identified, as well as the usual class interaction.
