Learning from the Past: A Guide for the Curious Researcher
Course starts on: Available now
This free online course explores the past and how the past influences our society today.
The language of history determines how we view our world and understand urgent issues, such as the environment, conflict and human rights. This language is shaped by documents held in libraries and archives, and the ways in which researchers interpret these is constantly developing.
This course will provide you with skills to discover and critically analyse the records of the past, including hidden treasures from the British Library’s collections.
Researchers at the University of Nottingham and University of Birmingham will show how these collections influence the way we view our world today.
