On 10th and 11th March, a group of history research students from the University of Uppsala in Sweden visited the University to take part in a two-day workshop. The Swedish students are studying a two-year MA programme in Early-Modern History (taught in English), which has a strong research component.
The workshop was organised by Professor Jon Stobart and involved students on the University’s MA History programme, as well as history PhD students from Northampton and the University of Leicester. It provided an opportunity for detailed discussion of the historical sources and methods being employed by the British and Swedish students, and was organised around a number of themed panels which focused on topics from crime to consumption.
