University of Warwick
Why do the places we live look the way they do? Does it matter that statues celebrate the lives of slave traders and country houses were built using profits from the slave trade? What stories might be told about how the past imprints itself on the present? On this strand, you will explore the theme of the ‘Colonial Hangover’. You will study the legacies of ‘Empire’ and ‘Colonialism’ in everyday life, taking you significantly beyond the confines of your A-Level curriculum.
The departments of Politics, Liberal Arts & History will come together to teach this shared topic of interest, giving you an important sense of what studying at university is like. You will be asked to consider how your experiences intersect on a daily basis with a world that is supposedly long since gone, and how the country’s history shapes the lives you are trying to create for yourselves today.
