“The Industrial Revolution in Britain: Historical Interpretations” is a five-week school teacher seminar in the United Kingdom for sixteen participants on the Industrial Revolution in Britain. The project, states veteran director Gerard Koot, aims “to develop a critical appreciation for the experience of industrialization in Britain, the historiography of the subject, and the lasting influence these interpretations have had on cultural values.” “[S]ince one of the chief causes of the British Industrial Revolution was the growth and dynamism of the London market,” the seminar begins with a week in that city, then moves to Nottingham for four weeks with continuing site visits that provide a “physical appreciation of the dramatic transformation in material and social life that the industrial revolution entailed.” Guided by education and museum consultant Haydon Luke, participants visit, for example, the world’s first mechanized cotton mill, a communal dwelling for children who worked in textile mills, a coal mine, and various museums and historical parks. Cooperative study groups rotate leading the participant discussions. Readings include John L. and Barbara Hammond’s The Town Labourer: The New Civilization, 1760-1832; E. J. Hobsbawm’s Industry and Empire; Katrina Honeyman’s Women, Gender, and Industrialisation in England, 1700-1870; Robert C. Allen’s The British Industrial Revolution in Global Perspective; poems by William Blake and William Wordsworth; and the opposing arguments between Robert Southey and Thomas Babington Macaulay on the impact of industrialization on the poor. Participants keep a reading journal, write two interpretive essays or one larger seminar paper, and contribute to the website.
