Course aim:
To explore the history of the Great Exhibition, considering the reasons behind it, how it worked in practice and its legacy.
Course description:
The Great Exhibition is widely seen as a statement of Victorian self-confidence, but its roots can be traced to a widespread concern about the state of industrial design in Britain. So, what were the real aims behind the Exhibition, and how were they fulfilled? What concerns did such a radically novel event raise for Victorian society? What was the experience like for visitors? Why was it such a huge success at the time? And what was its lasting impact?
By the end of the course I will be able to:
1. explain the main aims of the Great Exhibition.
2. outline aspects of the visitor experience at the Great Exhibition.
3. identify three elements of the legacy of the Great Exhibition.
