Words & Ideas Explore the written and spoken word, and engage in philosophical thought and critical enquiry in this series of courses.

Reading on the Underground: London Book Club

Romanticism and Politics This course combines culture, art and politics to examine early nineteenth century history. What was the link of Romanticism in poetry, painting and music to the political uprisings that threatened the whole order of life in Europe, from Napoleon to the revolutions of 1830 and the 1840s?

“The London Underground is not a political movement!” according to A Fish Called Wanda. But contemporary novelists are drawn to the stories found where the city’s social and cultural ‘undergrounds’ collide. The reading list is A Dead Man in Deptford, Wise Children, London Triptych, Absolute Beginners and Tipping the Velvet.
