Working Lives in the Factories and Mills: Textile heritage of the factory workers

University of Glasgow via FutureLearn

Overview

##

The course is important in that it will discuss the relationship between textile factory labour in the past and present, and specifically consider the uses of British industrial heritage in the present day. It will also teach students skills in historical, literary and genealogical research and provide opportunities for further engagement via events at the museums and contributions to ongoing research project

The target audience consists of members of the public with an interest in industrial history or heritage, or specific connections to mill-work (e.g. through family links). The secondary audience will be professionals working in or aiming to work in the heritage sector. The course will also appeal to students at school or university who have interests in the long Victorian period. Learners do not require prior experience or qualifications. Our museum partners have strong connections to local schools and communities, and through our partnerships with them we will have unique opportunities to advertise to wider local audiences.
