Research Areas

We have particular research strengths in: early modern Britain and Europe; Russian and Soviet history; American history; Modern Europe; and local history. We also have research expertise in gender and women’s history; oral history and memory studies; intellectual history and the history of ideas; and African American history and culture.

Our lively research environment includes access to open lecture programmes and seminars across the university, and we’ll expect you to contribute to the research culture and experience. You’ll be well supported by your supervisory team and can expect regular individual tutorials with supervisors, combined with peer-group seminars and discussions. We offer opportunities for interdisciplinary research within humanities and across the university, and our system of using a supervisory team as opposed to an individual supervisor makes this mode of study particularly appropriate.

Applications for interdisciplinary research degrees in British studies, gender/women’s studies, American Studies, memory studies, and in other areas are welcome.

This research contributes to the subject community Religious, Philosophical and Historical Studies and the research priority area Being Human: Past, Present and Future.
