HI306T: PEOPLE POWER: NEW SOCIAL MOVEMENTS IN POST WAR SCOTLAND (2019-2020)

Last modified: 25 Sep 2019 09:58


Course Overview

The decades after the Second World War saw the nature of Scottish politics and society radically change. Trade unionists, socialists, feminist and gay liberation activists, community organisers, Church officials, and even anti-nuclear protesters at this very University politicised the issues of class, community, sexuality, youth and peace. In so doing they challenged both the assumptions of party politics, and pre-existing cultural identities and traditions. Based on a substantive engagement with primary and secondary readings, this course will analyse the effects of these ‘new social movements’, and consider the transformation of Scotland’s post-war history in a British and European context.
