Victorian England ~ Winter Quarter: The British Empire in the 19th Century.  Presented by William H. Fredlund, Ph.D.  10 Wednesdays, January 9 - March 13, 2019, 7:00-9:45PM.

The Victorian era is defined by the 63-year reign of Victoria, from her accession in 1837 until her death on 22 January 1901 -- a period that saw decades of bountiful peace, prosperity, and national self-confidence for the island nation.  And then in August of 1914 the complacency and satisfaction all blew up when the "guns of August" led to the nightmare of World War I. "Victorian England" is a 30-week course (fall, winter, and spring).  

William H. Fredlund, the Director of the Institute, obtained his B.A. and M.A. from UCLA, where he specialized in European history and art history. He studied in Italy on a Fulbright Fellowship and completed a double Ph.D. in history and humanities at Stanford, specializing in Renaissance Italy. Dr. Fredlund has taught for UCLA, the University of Florence, Stanford, and UCSC Extension.
