English Local History and Family History

The course combines a systematic training in historical research techniques with the study of a range of major local historical themes and the chance to undertake an individually researched dissertation. This degree provides you with training, up to research level, in the 'Leicester' approach to English Local History. You will look in depth at the interaction between society and landscape and use comparative methods to test hypotheses and interpretations, which might include comparisons with places outside the British Isles. Through lectures, seminars, group work and field study trips, you will develop a deeper knowledge of comparative landscape and community, with emphasis on cultural regions, historical ecology and regional identities. The course consists of four core modules, a field course and a dissertation. During the field course, which takes place in the Midlands, you will take part in intensive study of the landscape. During the fieldwork option, you will develop your observational skills and gain an appreciation of the role that landscape and the structures of community have to play in historical enquiry.
