Academics' perspective

Case Study: Making History

Making History is a first-year core module for all history students. The module explores the practice of history through the research process, from primary sources to the presentation, dissemination, manipulation and consumption of historical interpretation. It encourages students to think critically about materials, scholarship and their own approach to academic work in different media.

The module convenor Dr Sarah Richardson presents the case study on the research-heavy module.
