Course Description

Mid-nineteenth-century British paintings and writings tell us much about the society of the period. This course will consider the political agency with which forms of visual and verbal representation were invested by those artists and writers, including WP Frith, Augustus Egg, Charles Dickens and Elizabeth Gaskell, who sought to confront contemporary audiences with the realities and iniquities. Together, we will explore issues of class, race, gender equality, anthropology, science and modernity that emerge from these works.
