Aims and Objectives
Knowledge and Understanding
Having successfully completed this module, you will be able to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of:
- Different Approaches of historians to the selected themes
- the Medieval world through the selected themes
- A wide variety of sources for the selected themes
The module will introduce you to the wide range of uses historians have made of medieval documentation from 1000 to 1500. Approaches to the study of sources are often oblique and many classes of record are employed to support research on themes far from those envisaged by their original creators. We will introduce you to these methods in the first seminar through case studies in selected documentary classes.
Subsequent seminars will follow themes, partly set by student choices: an indicative list of areas for study would include the nobility; nation and community; the uses of the past; lordship; everyday life; war; political and religious culture.
Learning and Teaching
Teaching and learning methods
The current intention is to deliver teaching for this module online. If circumstances allow, some form of blended delivery methods, including seminars, workshops, or individual tutorials may be introduced if it is safe for all concerned to do so. However, delivery will remain entirely online if face to face teaching is not possible or advisable.
