Undergraduate teaching

Georgians at War (HIST3685)

This module stems from many years of research and scholarship into the impact of war on Georgian lives and takes a broad perspective of the period. It encompasses society, politics, culture, and gender to explore the multi-faceted interactions between the military and society. The course embraces the experience of the ‘elite’ and ordinary men and women who were affected by war. The sources that will be consulted will include parliamentary debates, newspapers, digitised archival material, material culture, private letters, and individual testimony, utilised in my recent research. 

Arts Research Placement (FOAR2000)

In this module, our students get to work with academics on their latest research. Working in groups, the students on this module are integrated into current research projects across the Faculty of Arts, in a unique combination of academic research and a work placement. Through this, our students learn valuable academic and professional skills, and often the projects involve communicating research to a public audience.
