We will explore one of the most celebrated Old English poems in its literary, historical and cultural contexts, including what reading it alongside the other texts in the single manuscript which survives can reveal about the author, the characters, and the so-called’heroic age’ which produced them. We also assess the legacy of the poem and its influence on subsequent literature. No prior knowledge of Old English is necessary and extracts from the poem will be provided in the original language and modern English translation.

Norwich is not normally associated with Pre-Raphaelite art. However this city can boast of having a family of artists (including a woman) who influenced the development of this innovative 19th century art movement. We will critically assess and engage with the paintings of the Sandys family which included portraiture, landscape and mythological subjects. By the end of the day attendees will gain a greater appreciation and understanding of Pre-Raphaelite art and the role one Norwich family played in its artistic vision.

This day school tells the story of the American Indian Wars from the perspective of one people, the Cheyenne, one of the most famous of the buffalo-hunting Indian tribes of the Great Plains. They fought hard to protect their land from American settlement in the 19th century, forming an alliance with Sitting Bull's Sioux. We will examine one tribe's experiences of war, economic collapse, imprisonment, massacre and regeneration.

Max Lieberman, Lovis Corinth and Max Slevogt were the three main Impressionist painters in Germany, at the time Monet and others were painting in France, but there were significant differences. Also because the Kaiser hated Impressionism there were more political consequences for Impressionists in Germany than in France. Examine these issues and others at this exciting day school.
