Course Description

This course will take a lively look into the development of many of the activities of leisure and pleasure which we take for granted today. Why did we become so interested in travel? Why did sport become so widespread? Why was reading such a welcome escape? How have we become a nation of shoppers? How did mass entertainment evolve? What is behind the history of adult education? All these issues will be discussed. No previous knowledge is required.
