Teaching and activities
Teaching on 'History Now' will be led by the Institute's academic staff and senior fellows, and by guest lecturers from academia, heritage, publishing and the media. In a relaxed and welcoming environment, we'll explore some of the key areas of current historical research, and the changing ways in which we can engage with the past. Themes will include:
- History and the environment
- Public history
- History of emotions and the body
- Digital history
- Race and 'decolonisation'
- History and locality, space and place
- New histories of time and scale
- Gender and identity
We'll also be making use of the the IHR's central London location to undertake visits to local museums and galleries to see history in practice.
'History Now' will provide a guide to those starting out on their research, and an opportunity for established teachers and researchers to refresh their knowledge current and forthcoming themes in historical practice.
