Research

The Department of History has approximate 30 full-time members of academic staff, all of whom are active researchers and whose research closely informs their teaching.

Their expertise ranges from the medieval period down almost to the present day, and from local history to global developments; it investigates major issues in society, politics, gender relations and international affairs, as well as the study of History itself; and it often involves links to other schools/departments and to institutions beyond The University.

A community of doctoral students, as well as the research seminars and conferences organised by staff, strengthens this lively research environment.
