Explore the culture, language and national identity of eight countries through their books, images, slogans and monuments

Are you interested in other countries? Do you want to study and understand other cultures? This free online course will take you on a journey through a number of periods from the medieval to the modern day, from Russia to Europe and all the way to Latin America. 

This course extends over the period of 4 weeks and comprises 12 5-minute talks by members of academic staff on books, slogans, monuments and images from various cultures.

The course was designed by the University of Bristol, the lead institution on thematic area 'Languages for Culture, History and Society' in the South West Consortium.
