Course Description

 The popular TV series “Downton Abbey” offers a window into the social, political, and cultural life of a period. The show lets us examine such topics as Edwardianism, the Great War, voting rights, the Roaring 20s, as well as the 21st-century context in which it is viewed. Can Downton really “do history” and why does our fascination with aristocracy persist in pop culture?
