Peterloo to the Pankhursts: Radicalism and Reform in the 19th Century
A new MOOC has been launched by Royal Holloway.
We welcome colleagues to sign up and experience the MOOC via the FutureLearn platform.
16th August 2019 marks the bicentenary of the Peterloo Massacre, a key milestone in the campaign to reform Parliament in the 19th century, and an important part of Britain’s democratic heritage and history. On this course, you will understand this event within a wider context of radicalism and reform over the 19th century.
You will first explore the birth of modern democratic ideas and responses to the American and French revolutions in the 18th century. You will end the course by examining the campaign for universal men’s and women’s suffrage in the early years of the 20th century.
