This curated three-part virtual lecture series from historian and author Emma Griffin will explore the lives of people in Britain during the Victorian age. From the opportunities and perils wrought by the industrial revolution to the host of new social and sexual freedoms of the era, this masterclass promises to offer many insights into a fascinating period.
Family Life in the Industrial Revolution
In our first two classes, we considered the impact of the industrial revolution on individual men and women. But most people did not live individually – they lived together in families, and what benefited the individual did not necessarily benefit the family. In this final class we bring the strands together to consider what happened to families, rather than individuals when Britain underwent its industrial revolution.
The session will include an introductory lecture, discussion of a document picked by Emma, and an extensive Q&A.
