History Taster Session

Date: 12-Nov-2020

Time: 15:45-17:15 

Target year group: Year 13

Information: Britain in the 60s: A Decade of Change

This lecture explores British society and culture in the 1960s, when the nation moved from an era of austerity and rationing to one of unprecedented affluence. This was a period of intellectual ferment when traditions and authorities were challenged, personal morality was re-evaluated, and new freedoms were claimed. Key topics to be covered include the impact of affluence and consumerism on class and gender relationships; the emergence of a national youth culture based around music and fashion; and the increasingly heated debates about immigration and race.
