This undergraduate final-year Special Subject module is designed to build upon work students have done in their first and second years, especially in relation to the history of imperialism and South Asia including the core course "Making of the Modern World" in the first year and such option modules as "Gandhi and Indian Nationalism" and "Travelling Eurasia, 1250-1850".
It offers students the opportunity to study the history of 19th-century India and its imperial contexts in greater depth. It enables undergraduates to engage with a broad range of research materials (from official sources to memoirs and newspaper reports) and helps to lay a foundation for postgraduate research.
