Stephen Bates - Curriculum Vitae

Employment history

Lecturer, University of Warwick: from October 2012 - present

I currently teach on two modules: Deviance and Non-Conformity and The European World.

Deviance is an extremely popular module that examines the construction of marginality during the late medieval and early modern period. In 2012, as module convenor, I developed and expanded the existing course. I now teach it alongside Dr. Penny Roberts.

European World is a survey course on early modern Europe, including global perspectives, between c.1500 and 1750. It is the core module for second-year students. I teach it as part of a team of lecturers and seminar tutors, co-ordinated by Professor Beat Kümin.
