Research in UCL History - current projects, staff research interests and postgraduate research students
With its wide-ranging expertise, covering almost all areas of historical scholarship, and its proximity to institutions such as the British Library, the Institute of Historical Research and the Warburg Institute, among others, UCL offers unique conditions for doctoral research in History. At any one time the History department contains between 70 and 90 postgraduate research students - working on topics that span all 5000 years of recorded human history, in areas all over the globe.
Our staff as well as our student body
are extremely cosmopolitan, attracting students from all over the
world. Many students work in a comparative or transnational perspective
and are involved in UCL’s Centre for Transnational History. Integration of research students into the department and research as a
collective experience are at the core of our graduate programme. In
addition to the department’s regular training seminars, most doctoral students participate in the seminars of the Institute of Historical Research and take modules at the UCL Doctoral School.
Our research students regularly organise their own workshops,
conferences and seminars. Funding for such events, as well as for
individual research trips and conference attendance is available from
the Department and from the UCL Doctoral School. See details of academic staff
to get some idea of the wide range of topics on which we are able to
provide supervision. Occasionally students are supervised in
cooperation with colleagues based in other departments (e.g. Language
departments, Archaeology, History of Art). You can discuss possible
supervision with the Graduate Tutor, Professor Eleanor Robson.
