HST6375 - Exhibiting the First World War

Module code: HST6375

Credits: 60

Exhibiting the First World War involves students in an in-depth, wholly original investigation into the history of specific areas of London in the period 1914-18. Students are introduced to the topic through seminars on the history of the capital at war, before commencing their own research projects on the experience of Londoners at war. These make use of a wide variety of source materials, including local archives, newspapers, and digitized military service records. There are site visits to archives and to locations of interest. Drawing on their research, students will create innovative public history, curating virtual tours on a dedicated module app. This module includes an element of collaborative work - you should expect to work with other students.
