Teaching and Organisational Responsibilities

Teaching

2012-2013

  • Seminar tutor for Making History (HI175). HI175 is a first year core module which explores the practice of history through the research process, from primary sources to the presentation, dissemination, manipulation and consumption of historical interpretation. This module includes input from and interaction with the University's Modern Records Centre and the Student Careers and Skills department.
  • Seminar tutor for Early American Social History (AM204). AM204 examines English colonies in North America from their establishment in the early seventeenth century to their break away from Britain in the 1770s. It will examine why the English felt the need for colonial expansion in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, why they chose North America and how they went about creating new societies three thousand miles from home. While much of the module will be arranged chronologically, time will be set aside for the consideration of several social, ethnic, and cultural themes that do not fit quite so neatly into this format.


2009-2012

  • Seminar Tutor for North America: Themes and Problems, (AM102).AM102 is is a first year core module for undergraduate students in the School for Comparative American Studies. It is also opened as an option module for first and second year students in the undergraduate programmes within the History Department. Alongside guiding the seminars I am responsible for providing feedback and advice on both writing and research, including marked essays throughout the year and individual feedback.
  • Theory, Skills and Methods: Quantitative Research Lectures. A Comparative Analysis of White and Slave Mortality in Savannah, 1854-1860
  • Theory, Skills and Methods - Q & A at 'Speaking History: Presenting a Seminar Paper.'
  • Race, Gender and Sexuality in North America. Lecture and workshop series. On Thursday 25th November I delivered a series of lectures and interactive workshops at The Westwood School: Technology College. The lecture was based broadly around the manner in which constructions of a deviant African American sexuality became a tool of oppression and a legitimating factor in forms of extra-legal mob violence during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The workshops provided a more broad thematic discussion on sexuality in mass media and the manner in which "sexual health" should incorporate an understanding of the social and cultural construction of sex and sexuality.
