You are cordially invited to a lecture by Johan van Wijk (Driestar University for Teacher Education, Gouda)

Title of lecture:

How our world was shaped; a cross-disciplinary look at Britain´s 19th century.

The world we live in is often too easily taken for granted. Therefore a closer look at how things came about is in place and appears to be truly fascinating. In this lecture we will look  at Britain’s Industrial Revolution with the help of some natural resources & some clever folks. The world changed for good, but not everybody was enchanted…

Venue: PCU, Shakespeare Room
Time of lecture: 7 April 2016, 14.00 pm.
