Areas of Research

The Department of History maintains a strong emphasis on research. The Faculty believe that a focus on research will translate into more creative pedagogies and allow students to engage more innovatively with the past.

The research interests of the History Faculty straddle fields as diverse as History of Medicine, History of Crime, Social History, Museum Studies, Visual Histories, Traditions of Historiography, Cultural Heritage and Ethics, Social Archaeology, and Ancient Technology.

We seek to build upon these interests through teaching, supervising research, collaborating with national and international partners, publishing and outreach. The interdisciplinary approach of the Department is reflected in its teaching and research agendas.
