Modules

The overall aim of this module is to introduce students to key debates and developments that have shaped, and in many cases continue, to shape the writing of history. In this way, the module will provide a broad framework for understanding the evolution of the historical discipline in modern times. Consideration will be given to various historiographical issues ranging from environmental and political history through to the use of gender and memory theories in the examination of the past. Weekly lectures will give a general overview of each debate, which will be then followed up by seminars. In these meetings, students will be able to discuss the lecture themes in relation to their own, ongoing research projects.
