Gratis kurser om Første Verdenskrig høsten 2014

Høsten 2014 starter der opp 4 stk 3-ukers MOOC kurser om den Første Verdenskrigen på FutureLearn. Kursene er et samarbeid mellom University of Birmingham og BBC.

De ser veldig interessante ut!

Du vil kunne finne dem her:

 

«World War 1 – Paris 1919 – New World Order?»

Kurset starter 13. oktober 2014. Varighet 3 uker.

https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/ww1-new-world-order

Beskrivelse:

The Paris Peace Conference of 1919 ended a Great War, but it also designed the post-war future. In 1919, world leaders assembled in Paris redrew the map of the world, partitioned and created countries, and ushered in a new era of international relations. The naivety of the peace-makers of 1919 has been justly criticised. However, in setting up a permanent ‘world organisation’, the League of Nations, they changed the management of world affairs forever…

Produced in collaboration with the BBC, this three-week course will let you retrace the steps of those who took those momentous decisions almost a century ago. You’ll have a chance to assess how, over the past century, world organisations (first the League of Nations, then the United Nations) have become a forum for international cooperation. And you’ll be encouraged to debate many of the issues that have vexed international politics since then.

 

«World War 1 – Aviation Comes of Age».

Kurset starter 20. oktober 2014. Varighet 3 uker.

https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/ww1-aviation

Beskrivelse:

This course will investigate how the early days of aviation gripped the imagination of the general public, galvanised industry and excited far-sighted members of the military.

Aviation evolved rapidly during World War 1 with modern and more effective aircraft soon replacing the very basic machines that took to the skies in 1914.

By the end of war, air power wasn’t just being used for reconnaissance but in ways that are still recognisable today. When the war was over aviation had truly come of age with the opening of mail routes, exploration and record setting exploits.

Produced in collaboration with the BBC and filmed at the Royal Air Force Museum at Hendon this course draws on first –hand interviews from the BBC archive and archival material from the RAF Museum and will look at how this came about and explore the many myths that have arisen.

 

World War 1 – Changing Faces of Heroism». 

Kurset starter 20. oktober 2014. Varighet 3 uker.

https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/ww1-heroism

Beskrivelse:

Did the First World War make heroism meaningless or was it the conflict that gave it the most meaning?  We’ve designed this course in partnership with the BBC to help you explore, discuss and challenge the ways in which First World War heroism has been remembered. Our experts will take you through the changing British, French and German views of heroism and discuss important similarities and differences.

Through discussion and analysis of art, literature, film and television, guided by our experts, you will explore the portrayals of heroism before, during and after the war. Drawing on rarely seen archive you will be curating a mini exhibition, exploring a war memorial and writing a review of a representation of war.

Together we will examine the changing faces of heroism from distant figureheads and brave warriors to the ordinary ‘Tommy’ and front-line nurses. The emergence of alternative hero figures, including anti-war campaigners and vulnerable, shell shocked soldiers, is also covered. We hope you will join the University of Leeds and the BBC in a fascinating reflection on the place of heroism, in the centenary commemorations of the First World War.

 

«World War 1 – Trauma and Memory»

Kurset starter 3. november 2014. Varighet 3 uker.

 [https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/ww1-trauma](https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/ww1-trauma)
Beskrivelse:
2014 marks the centennial year of the beginning of the First World War. The war began in the Balkans, but it soon spread to become a European conflict, and developed into a world war. It was a war of unprecedented scale and brutality, with countless casualties. It also left a poisonous legacy for the 20th century and beyond, and many of the issues that were left unresolved in 1918 would lead to another world war in 1939. 1914-1918 was a period in history that has proved provocative and culturally resonant for the last hundred years.You will study the subject of physical and mental trauma, its treatments and its representation. You will focus not only on the trauma experienced by combatants but also the effects of the First World War on civilian populations. In this three-week course, you will discover just how devastating the effects of the First World War were in terms of casualties across the many combatant nations and look in depth at the problem of ‘shell shock’ and how deeply it affected the lives of those who lived through it. You will also develop the skills to carry out your own independent research.

The war was not only experienced on the battlefield, however, and you’ll explore the many and varied ways in which civilians’ lives were affected by it, for example in the way combatant casualties affected the lives of loved ones who were left behind.

Finally, you’ll be looking at how the trauma of the First World War has been depicted in art and literature and see what has been learned from the past in the modern day treatment of combat stress reactions and PTSD.

This course has been produced in collaboration with the BBC, using archive material you will see how representations of trauma have changed over the years.

Cement lagt av ris i Kinas store mur…

Analyser av den sementen, som ble brukt under Ming dynastiet i bygningen av den store muren i Kina, har vist at det ble brukt ris til fremstillingen. Så ikke bare skulle Kina føde bygningsarbeiderne men også selve muren…

Nytt spennende gratis historiekurs (MOOC) om arkitekturens historie er akkurat startet

Allerede i de første leksjoner har jeg lært noe på dette kurset!

Foreleseren er tydelig, flink til å formidle og snakker om emner jeg finner veldige interessante!

Arbeidsbyrden – hvis du vil gjøre alt er stor – men jeg tror også (ut i fra mitt førstehåndsinntrykk) at utbyttet kan bli stort 🙂 Og hvis man ikke greier det første gang, så kan man jo prøve neste gang…
Eller man kan unnlate å gjøre oppgavene og bare lytte til det faglige innholdet…

https://www.edx.org/course/mit/4-605x/global-history-architecture-part/884

Og så er det noe som tyder på at det kommer et eller flere oppfølgende kurser senere…

Andrew Marrs verdenshistorie

Andrew Marr har lagt en flott dokumentarserie om verdenshistorien. Han har noen overraskende synsvinkler og er en god forteller.

Det er jo som vanlig nødvendig å være kritisk. Ennå en mannlig historiker (eller hva han nå er) som legger større vekt på jegeraktiviteter i forhold til samlere, broen over kløfta i del 1 er geologisk veldig urealistisk, samt flere andre ting. Men han forteller også ting som jeg ikke visste fra før – dem kan jeg av gode grunner ikke ta stilling til…

Konstantinopel – murer som holdt i 1000 år

Konstantinopel var en by – et sentrum – for makt, handel og kultur mm. i over 1000 år.

På ED-TED forteller Lars Brownworth noen av de teknologiske grunnene til at det kunne la seg gjøre

The city of walls: Constantinople – Lars Brownworth

Det anbefales å se hans forklaring flere ganger!
