What were they thinking? Problems and potential in cultural history

This is an informal session introducing some problems encountered by cultural historians through a brief presentation of a research project on 'The welfare of wounded soldiers in early modern England'

Who is it for?

All researchers and postgraduate research students (Masters Research and PhD), and especially for final year PhD students and early career researchers from all faculties.


A brief presentation on 'The welfare of wounded soldiers in early modern England' followed by group discussion.

What will I get out of this?

Participants will learn how to set up research questions by borrowing from other disciplines; understand the importance of contemporary social and political issues for shaping studies into the past; knowledge of how to make the transition from doctoral to post-doctoral research; ideas on how to structure a large, self-regulated post-doctoral project.
