When you get to the end of the tutorial you should be able to say more about the following subjects:

In exploring these areas you should also develop the following skills:

These skills will help you with the more advanced stages of the tutorials on this website. However, these skills should also help you in other ways. More specifically, by the end of this tutorial, you should have a more sophisticated understanding of how to interpret images – in particular those that can tell us important things about late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century ideas about gender. Whilst these skills will help you with essay writing, they will also help you develop ideas for your own research, such as an undergraduate dissertation.

As you work through the tutorial, you may want to keep a record of your answers with a notepad and paper.

* Please note, though, that you will need to have access to the following online resources if you are to complete this stage of the tutorial: the Oxford English Dictionary (OED), the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography (ODNB), Early English Books Online (EEBO), and COPAC. You should have access to these resources if you are accessing these tutorials from a university computer. Moreover, you should be able to access these resources from outside of a university network if you have a password to logon to a university network.
