Module overview

This core module provides students with an opportunity to engage with a variety of methodologies and themes at MA level, including those they may be less familiar with, such as oral history and the history of memory, and cultural history and the history of emotions. Focussing particularly on areas of study which have seen recent growth and innovation, such as gender history and masculinity, this module also considers how historians can draw upon and interact with methodologies and theories from other disciplines such as anthropology, sociology, psychology, and political science. Sessions will involve studying themes over broad time periods, offering students the opportunity to focus on more conceptual historical approaches.
