Overview

##

The centenary of the First World War is a time for reflection and exploration. In this short course you will discover just some of the ways that heroism is portrayed through art and film.

You will explore recruitment posters and the messages they portrayed for both those going to war and those staying at home, as well as researching WW1 art and reflecting upon a painting you have chosen. You will then move on to explore contemporary German film, consolidating your learning by reviewing a recent book, film, or TV programme about the First World War.

This course is part of the Going to University collection which has been specifically designed for students at schools and colleges. They provide a taster of undergraduate study at the University of Leeds and help students to decide which subject to study at university.

Completion of the courses will also enhance students’ university applications.

The courses can also be used as a teachers’ classroom enrichment resource.

Courses in this collection are also great for people that want an introduction in the specific subjects discussed in each course.

Therese completed this course, spending 4 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.
Absolutely wonderful! Very enlightening as to the methods used to enlist interest & support for a war that was only to last months. This was the war to end all wars, yet here it is, nearly the eve of 2019, and war is ever present. Please consider taking this class as an introduction into how easily war can be enacted & how desperately a nation is willing to contend for victory against an aggressor.
