The aim of a History special subject is to provide final year single honours history students with an opportunity to study a relatively narrow and specialised subject in considerable depth and with substantial attention to original sources.
A range of special subjects will be available in each semester. Each new special subject course will be presented for approval separately, but will share the same module identifier. The module co-ordinator for Special Subjects will arrange for students' choice of special subject, in consultation with the degree scheme co-ordinator(s).
Special Subjects are available in both Semesters. The current range of Special Subjects are:
Roman Britain and the Roman Army Dr Jeffrey Davies
The Reign of Edward II Dr Phillipp Schofield
Gender in History Dr Michael Roberts
British Society and the French Revolution 1789-1803 Dr Martyn Powell
The American Civil War Dr Robert Harrison
1848 in France: a case study in Revolution Professor Roger Price
The Irish in Britain 18942-1922 Dr Paul O'Leary
The Holocaust Professor William Rubinstein
Britain at War 1939-1945 Dr Sian Nicholas
Not all of the above are available during every session.
