Research

Teaching in the Department is significantly influenced by the research work of the Department’s academic staff, particularly in the optional modules of the undergraduate and MA taught degrees. This approach of research-led teaching guarantees that students are engaged with the very latest historical research.

The Department also has a strong postdoctoral research community, including in recent years Leverhulme Early Career Fellows, Marie Curie Research Scholars, Wellcome Trust Research Fellows, British Academy Research Fellows, SSHRCC Research Fellows, CARA Research Mobility Fellows, and grant-funded Research Assistants.
