Requisites for this module
In this module we examine the developments and changes in women's life and work over the twentieth century with a particular focus on the first British women gaining the right to vote in 1918. In cooperation with Essex museums and their aim to showcase women's achievements over the last 100, we explore how women have been represented in museums and films and if their voices have been heard. Political participation as well as the workplace will be key areas of the module. This module allows students to gain new understanding of a key historical moment in the context of a practical project with Essex Museums.
Students will have the chance to help decide the final output in discussion with Essex Museums staff. Students will be fully supported and guided by academic tutors and professional staff from the museums sector.
