    The British Civilisation module for Licence 2 aims to provide students with a broad understanding of the historical events and cultural context of the 19th century in Britain and Ireland. The classes taught within this module will cover the major milestones of the century - in particular the industrial revolution, the rise of the British Empire, and the fundamental ideas to emerge within British politics at this time. The classes explore Britain’s place in the world, and the structures and institutions upon which the modern country was built. Classes are built around tailored brochures, wherein the student will study, examine, and interrogate 19th-century texts.

Students will study the fundamental principles and moral values of American democracy as expressed in the U.S. Constitution and other key documents.

        • General U.S. History : from the Age of Imperialism to the present day

        (Les noms des enseignants et les horaires seront communiqués ultérieurement)

         

        This course is intended as a general survey of the social, cultural, economic, and political currents that have shaped American history from the Reconstruction era and the age of imperialism in the late 19th century up to the present day. Taught chronologically, the course will emphasize certain key themes, such as progressivism, America’s response to wars abroad, the Great Depression, cultural diversity, race and race relations, American Imperialism, and economic growth and political development. By the end of the semester, students will understand how the United States grew from a relatively weak and divided agricultural nation into a cohesive military and industrial superpower by the beginning of the twenty-first century.

         

        Course goals :

        • Familiarity with key events, dates, and figures that have shaped American history from the 1890s to the present.
        • Through the use of primary source analysis, students will be asked to think critically about the interplay between and among Americans both at home and abroad from the 1890s through the present. Particular attention will be paid to the impact American culture has had on the international arena and the impact that race has had on modern American society and politics.
        • Through learning historical methods of analysis, students will be able to conduct primary and secondary research, analyze data, and effectively present their findings both orally and in written form.

        Warning : this is NOT a grammar class, so students who have difficulties with their grammar must work on their own to improve their writing skills.

        • The Politics of Identity in Contemporary Britain (S. BALL)

         (Horaire à venir)

         

        In the context of the current disarray in broad-based party politics in the UK, this course takes as its theme political alliances formed around other forms of difference, i.e. ‘identity politics’. We start by examining the term and the controversies surrounding its use. We then move on to looking at the effects of identity politics in contemporary Britain, particularly in terms of class, ‘race’, gender. In the last part of the course we look at the making of identities in contemporary Britain with particular reference to the role of the media.

        • The Celtic Fringe : Nationalism and the UK in the 20th Century (T. McINERNEY)

        (Horaire à venir)

         

        This course looks at the United Kingdom’s constant struggle with its constituent nations and the idea of British identity over the course of the 20th century. Starting with the secession of Ireland, and the subsequent war in Northern Ireland, it will go on to explore the issues surrounding Scottish and Welsh devolution and the reasoning behind the Scottish independence movement. Following on from this, it will explore how English identity has been formed in opposition to its Celtic neighbours, and how this relationship has shaped modern nationalisms in Britain in the 20th century. Finally, these issues will all be brought together in an exploration of the Brexit referendum and the different motivations of each constituent country in today’s political landscape.

        • Audiovisual fiction and contemporary US society : from mirroring to reflexivity (S. LEFAIT)

         1er SEMESTRE, lundi 12h-15h

         

        This course focuses on what media analysis can bring to the study of contemporary American civilization. The aim is to show students how they may benefit from analyzing various types of media in order to improve their understanding of contemporary United States, but also to give them the required basics in case they should want to enroll in the MC2L Master’s degree. For this purpose, the zones of interference between various topical issues and their media representations will be studied, placing special emphasis on the bilateral influence they have on each other. Varied media will come under study (fixed image, cinema, television, Internet), in relation with various civilization issues : racial tensions and the stakes of their screen depiction, the rise of surveillance societies and its impact on audiovisual fiction, post-911 paranoia and corresponding media vehicles, the two-way relationship between military fiction and armed conflicts, etc. TV series will be under specific focus, especially their narrative techniques and their anchorage into the current participatory culture, as well as the way they picture contemporary American politics and tend to play a constantly growing part in it.

        • Renaissance England and the Reformation (R. BETHMONT)

         

         2e SEMESTRE, horaire à venir

         

        This course will offer an overview of the Tudor Age from Henry VIII to Elizabeth I, insisting more particularly on the great religious transformation of the century ; the adoption of Protestantism. Students will not only study the political significance of England choosing the side of the Reformation in Europe (an essential aspect of religious reforms), but also the change that this represented in the experience and worldview of the English at the time. It was because religious reforms had a direct impact on people’s lives and beliefs as well as a political significance that they were the occasions of impassioned controversies and conflicts throughout the 16th century.
