The Department of History covers a broad range of the political, social, economic and cultural history of Britain and Europe from the late middle ages to the 20th century, with additional expertise in colonial and post-colonial history. It has particular strengths in policing and crime (embedded in a multidisciplinary research group), medical history, and imperial history (supported by the University’s multidisciplinary Ferguson Centre for Asian and African Studies). We welcome applications from students interested in studying full- or part-time for a PhD in early modern and modern history.
