Module overview

These modules will focus upon the development of highly transferable practical skills relevant to specific sectors through which change can be affected. In this module we will explore the ways in which history and the humanities can be leveraged to effect change through the policy sector (e.g. civil service, local govt., consultancy, risk analysis) and public advocacy (e.g. charities, think tanks, public campaigning). The module’s Communication Workshops will train participants in the production of two specific outputs: concise policy briefs aimed at policy makers, and compelling opinion pieces intended for the general public. Digital Humanities Workshops will develop skills in data analysis and data visualisation to enhance the impact of these outputs.
