Studies in the Social and Cultural History of British Universities. Final Report.
The principal objective of the present study is to analyze in proper historical dimensions, perspective, and detail the character of institutional change over time, and the response of universities to basic alterations in the structure and values of society. The period under consideration is primarily the great era of industrialization in England, from approximately 1760 to 1860. Since this was the first major transformation of the total character of western society to occur historically, the period offers an excellent example of the pattern of institutional response to economic, social, and technological change. The study explores primarily the nature and structure of teaching over time at Oxford and Cambridge. The ultimate goal of the work is to widen understanding of the social, cultural, and institutional conditions that make communication possible. No conclusions are made in the present report.
