In the footsteps of J.B. Priestley: England 1933-1934 View details

Better known as a novelist rather than a travel writer, J.B. Priestley, in 1933, embarked on a tour of the towns and regions of England examining living conditions, workplaces, unemployment, leisure, pleasure and place, with his experiences subsequently published as a book, 'English Journey' in 1934. Taking Priestley's volume as our guide, this course aims to explore, assess and examine aspects of England and English life and culture in the early 1930s, with a view to encouraging greater knowledge and comprehension of the period. Our aim is to interpret Priestley's book within a more modern context and help develop a deeper understanding of what became known as the 'Devil's Decade'.
