The Sinking of the Titanic: What Really Happened and Why?  

Vivid descriptions of the doomed maiden voyage and sinking of the Titanic, of the ship's conception and construction, and of the trans-Atlantic shipping industry and Edwardian British and American societies of the period, will "put you on the ship" in 1912 to help experience what its passengers did. We will also explore the finding and exploration of the Titanic wreckage since 1985, and the sinking's portrayal in popular movies and literature. And the highlight of this course will be marine engineering and technical analysis over the last 20 years of why the ship sank the way it did.
