History | Summer Reading: Books, Books and More Books!

Course Type: Adult leisure and hobby, Open to international students Campus: Central Brighton Campus

Why this course?

If you love books, reading, social and cultural history, and lots of lively discussion in a relaxed, informal atmosphere then this one-day course is definitely for you.

This is a unique one-day study session comprising literature and social and cultural history. Within the pages of the novel we discover more than a story - enthralling ‘other’ information about people, relationships, class and place.

We discuss books for summer reading from a selection of novels with lots of background social and cultural history to be read before class (whole or part), plus further recommendations.

A different, unusual, exciting way of reading and learning in a friendly, relaxed group. We also view extracts of one or two of the novels that were made into films.

You will be expected to participate in group discussion in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Please request the reading list well in advance from the tutor : SARAH.TOBIAS@gbmc.ac.uk.
