Event Details

The University of Leeds has teamed up with the BBC to deliver a free online course on ‘World War 1: changing faces of heroism’. This short course looks at how the war moved us away from traditional views of heroism and created new kinds of heroes and heroines and the legacy this has left us with today.

World War 1 has had a significant impact on our lives and culture in ways we might not expect. Uniquely, this interactive online course explores heroism from British, French and German perspectives.

Led by Professor Alison Fell, the course starts on 27 October and runs for three weeks. Requiring just 4 hours of study a week, this course includes videos, interactive activities and discussion sessions for sharing ideas and building networks. The format is ideal for those who are working or have other commitments.
