Modern History

Research in history has developed around 2 especially well-defined clusters of expertise: the history of immigration, ethnic minorities and associated issues relating to national identity; and the cultural and social history of sport; the 1st of these is firmly based among colleagues teaching history in the department; the 2nd falls within the specialist remit of the International Centre for Sports History and Culture.
