L3 Civilisation britannique

Si vous êtes amené ( e ) à passer l'examen en deuxième session de civilisation britannique, sachez que

1) il s'agit d'un oral. Vous aurez un texte à préparer pendant une vingtaine de minutes, ensuite vous ferez un court commentaire de texte

2) Il est rare que les étudiants réussissent cette épreuve après avoir échoué en première session. Si vous ne lisez pas des livres d'histoire d'ici là, vous n'avez aucune chance.

L1 Panorama "Britain since the Romans"

I have started marking your scripts and some of them are very good. A couple of things people get confused about:

Before the Reformation, don't refer to the Christian religion as "catholicism". The word you are looking for is "Christianity". The distinction catholic/protestant will emerge during the reformation.

"Paganism" is not the name of a single religion : it is a name given by Christians to all older religions which were not Christian. As many of you have pointed out, the Christian church was able to integrate some pagan beliefs into Christianity in order to help convert some Pagans.

Experiencing music in the British home 1900-1925 | John Mullen - Academia.edu



This is  a contribution of mine to a research workshop at the University of Lincoln. It looks at the question "How did British people experience music in the home, before the generalization of the gramophone and the radio?" It is an introduction to future research.

L2 Thème examen

I have begun marking your final translation exam... And the translations are better than I expected. #happyteacher.

L3 group civilisation: oraux/exposés

L3 civilization: important

You need an oral mark for your third year civilization class. I have put up on Eprel a series of documents in the file "0314 orals". If you don't have these documents, send me an email immediately. (john point mullen arobase wanadoo point F R)
The oral exams will be at the following times :
Jeu 22 mai 12h-14h
Lundi 26 mai 13h-15h
Mardi 27 mai  14h-16h30

Tomorrow, Wednesday, I will put up on the door of my office a signing up sheet, so you can sign yourself in for a time slot. If it is difficult for you to come in on the 26th or 27th, make sure you sign up early for  a time slot on the 22nd : there are a limited number of slots.

When you come to your appointment for the oral exam, there is no preparation time : you have prepared all the documents at home. I will give you one of the documents (you may not choose) and you have exactly ten minutes to comment on the document, showing that you understand the document, how it works, and its wide historical context. Remember the aim is to show me you know things.

L3 British civilization

Your four hour exam, which includes a text commentary and an essay, will contain questions focussed on the period since 1970. You may of course mention events before 1970 for reasons of comparison and perspective, but none of the questions will have as their main focus the period 1945-70.
