Cíle předmětu
Students are introduced to history, literature and culture of Great Britain from the period of Roman Britain to the half of the 20th Century. The goal is to introduce important authors, literary movements, historical events and cultural context of the given period and analyze their interrelation. Students will understand how literary texts reflect historical events and cultural myths. They will learn to identify cultural values and interpret them with the purpose to enhance respect to otherness. Students will discuss the role of context, gender, race, and ethnicity in history and in forming of literary genres and topics. The class includes practical demonstrations of how to use literary texts to promote critical and creative thinking in class as well as to raise cultural and intercultural awareness. The class models an integrated format of teaching history, literature and culture, with an emphasis on cross-curricular learning and tandem teaching.
