This module addresses the nature of historical practice, ensuring that students can use and critically evaluate a range of theories, methods and approaches. It will raise awareness about history as a discipline and its relationships with other kindred fields. There will be visits, for example to libraries, archives and museums, and an opportunity for students to discuss their dissertations. Skills to be considered in the module include digital approaches, visual and textual analysis and the oral presentation of materials.
