Visual sources for historians

Greenwich Painted Hall

This course considers visual sources as evidence in historical practice and provides an introduction to understanding and researching material and visual culture. Drawing on diverse media from cartoons to political portraits, in still and moving images, in print and online, it suggests ways in which understanding visual sources can enhance the study of history by posing new questions and suggesting new answers to thorny research issues with material unavailable elsewhere.
