This programme of fortnightly workshops in the Michaelmas term will introduce Mphil participants to some of the key skills of historical research. Through seminars and group work, the course will explore a range of topics that are key to developing professional practice, including

  • what makes for excellent historical writing
  • using visual and audio resources
  • working in archives and museums
  • material culture and the material turn in history
  • exploring landscape, space and place
  • making the most of digital resources and social media

 The Research Challenge will offer archive and field trips, and students will be expected to actively contribute through presentations and discussion.
