Modern European History (Political Culture)

This course draws on our longstanding research strengths in a range of aspects of modern European history, including the history of class and mass movements, totalitarian societies, historiography and the mass media, to enable you to develop your own research interests in European history.

In Semester 1 you'll follow a core module that addresses the concept of political culture (addressing such issues as the public sphere, community and participation, the role of the media, etc.) in the modern era. This is followed by a range of options in Semester 2 on topics such as science and the Victorians, politics and the mass media, Anglo-American interactions, and popular memory and the Second World War.

Alongside this study, you will benefit from specialist research training tailored to your own particular research interests: for instance, the use of public opinion data or private correspondence, visual and sound media, newspapers and broadcast sources, oral history, etc. You will also have the opportunity to study a modern European language at either beginners or advanced level.

There are also classes to help you research and write your MA dissertation, an original research project (15,000 words) undertaken by you and written over the course of the year under the close supervision of a specialist within the Department.
