The next in our series on leading themes and concepts in History.
Historical studies of neo-liberalism are much in evidence. The early 2020s have seen new monographs, edited collections and journal articles — offering us a growing range of perspectives on this subject. ‘New Histories of Neo-Liberalism’ brings together five historians who’ve made significant recent interventions, with reference to diverse geographies, political structures, chronologies and methodologies. In doing so, the panel will identify and explore a prominent, resonant and much debated theme in historical research.
In September 2022 the Royal Historical Society, in partnership with History UK, organised an interactive workshop hosted by Professor Jamie Wood (Lincoln). This workshop aimed to open discussions on the challenges and opportunities of teaching History at UK universities, and provide higher education teachers with effective pedagogical skills and techniques.
This workshop consisted of eight sessions of 45-50 minutes each, where experienced historians specialising in innovative pedagogy introduced and discussed approaches to History teaching.
Each presentation was designed for those new to or who’ve recently begun History teaching in Higher Education. Topics include writing and presenting a History lecture; working in large and small seminar groups; teaching online; teaching creatively; and providing constructive assessment to students.
