Undergraduate courses on Winston Churchill are lamentably rare, but one of them is currently on offer at the George Washington University, home of the National Churchill Library and Center. “Churchill’s World” is taught by Professor Dane Kennedy of the History Department, with the assistance of NCLC Director Michael F. Bishop, who will serve as an occasional guest instructor. The class meets weekly in the Reading Room of the NCLC.
Students are reading works by historians such as Paul Johnson, Jonathan Schneer, and John Lukacs, as well as many by Churchill himself. They will make use of the online Churchill Archive, available at the NCLC, and other digital databases. Students will be graded on their class participation, oral presentations, a term paper, and other assignments.
