HOW HAS SOCIETY CHANGED OVER THE LAST 150 YEARS: AN INTERACTIVE WORKSHOP

2:00pm-3:00pm on Monday 4 April

Times shown are in GMT (UTC +0) up to the 26th March. For events on or after 27th March times are in BST (UTC +1).

Explore changes in population and society using interactive websites, and join in with a live online quiz to share your findings. This event is led by Alice Reid, Department of Geography.

The past 150 years have seen big changes in the way we live in the UK: children stay at school longer and start work and have families at older ages, people are engaged in different types of work, the make-up of households and migration patterns have changed. But how big are these changes?

Have things changed as much as we think they have? Have geographical differences across Great Britain become more or less intense over time? In this online workshop, historical demographer Dr Alice Reid will introduce interactive websites which can help us to answer such questions. Participants will be guided in their own exploration of questions and comparisons, share their findings and ask their own questions using online polling software, and Dr Reid will discuss and interpret these responses.

The workshop will be live-streamed. Use of a computer is recommended as participants will need to both watch the presentation and access other websites.
