Social and Cultural History
This taught course offers a wide-ranging introduction to higher level study in social and cultural history. Covering a number of critical areas of historical work the programme will help to develop and enhance students skills as a research historian. This is an opportunity to deepen passion for the past through modules that engage with new and emerging research, approaches and debates. The course provides a well-structured introduction to the methods and theories associated with social and cultural history. Specific modules also provide opportunities to engage in a more focused study of historical topics from the medieval to the modern. Research skills are embedded in the core modules and there is an opportunity to take a research-based work-related placement.
Applicants must have obtained, or predicted to obtain, normally an undergraduate Honours degree in a Humanities or Social Science subject (or equivalent).
Students will study a wide variety of modules within this course which may include some of the following: Social history: Introduction, approaches and methods; cultural history: Theory, debates and discourse; cultures of secrecy and security; bombers and mash: Lincolnshire and the Second World War; a cultural history of death, dying and disposal.
Modules are assessed by a variety of coursework tasks intended to develop advanced academic and communication skills. Typically, this will include written essays, presentations, and specialist research tasks. Placements are assessed through the submission of a critically reflective piece of writing. The dissertation module is an opportunity to undertake a substantial, independent research project. Assessment is supported by one-to-one consultations or supervisions.
