Here you can information about the kinds of research being undertaken by our postgraduate students.
Each ‘Research Spotlight’ offers an overview research that is currently being undertaken – either as part of an MA dissertation or for a PhD thesis – before going on to explore one aspect of that research in detail. Spotlights come in all shapes and sizes, but they most commonly take the form of a discussion of a research trip, recount time in the archives, or offer an opportunity to explore a line of enquiry that offers a sideline view of the project as a whole.
