Course aim:

Course description:
This course if for Norfolk and Suffolk residents only. The course will examine the portrayal of 'fallen women' in the work of 19th century British writers and artists, focussing, in particular, on common motifs and imagery. Beginning with the ideology of 'Separate Spheres' for men and women and the paradigm of the 'Angel in the House', we will look at the ways in which the art and literature of the period typically depicts the 'fallen woman' and what it tells us about the perceived role of women in a rapidly changing world.
By the end of the course I will be able to:
1. make informed connections between works of art and literature based on cultural context
2. identify similarities in form and content across different media
3. demonstrate an understanding of the economic and social background that informs the concept of the 'fallen woman'
