Full course description:

The Bloomsbury Group was an informal association of artists critics, writers and economists whose dissatisfaction with Victorian attitudes and aesthetics led to a fundamental cultural and social revaluation, turning from religion, Empire and conventional sexual ethics and helping to re-invigorate the fossilising British literary and artistic conventions through European and Modernist ideas. We will explore the Bloomsberries' artistic, literary, social, political and economic influence through the works and vision of Virginia Woolf, Vita Sackville West, Lytton Strachey, Roger Fry, Maynard Keynes, Duncan Grant and Vanessa Bell.

It is hoped to visit Garsington, former home of the society hostess Lady Ottoline Morrell.

Please note that visits off-site can involve a substantial amount of walking, including rough ground and steps. Please wear stout/comfortable footwear for the visit(s) out and be prepared for the British weather.
