Many of the research opportunities in history are interdisciplinary and are available for most periods of history and in most geographical regions. MPhil/PhD supervision is normally available in the following subject areas: Classical, medieval and early modern medicine, Death and burial, Gender, women’s history and the history of sexuality, Historical demography, History of ideas, History of psychiatry, Early medieval Britain and Europe, National identity, inter-ethnic relations and border issues, Politics, international relations and the impact of war, Urban history and urban culture.
Our postgraduates enjoy a research environment in which ambitious and original ideas can flourish and they take part in the School’s research seminar series, lunchtime Postgraduate Forum seminars, and annual postgraduate conference which is organised by postgraduate students. The Postgraduate Forum also runs its own peer-reviewed e-journal. In addition, our Humanities and Social Sciences Graduate School organises a comprehensive training programme for postgraduate students that covers research techniques, professional/key skills and provides support for personal development.
