History Research Group Overview

The History Research Group is composed of a range of leading academics working in specialist fields including migration, Anglo-Jewry, minorities and sport, south east European history, the history of India and Pakistan and the recent agrarian history of Britain. The group have collectively published numerous books and articles and have also attracted a wide range of funding. They can offer supervision in a wide range of topics from the medieval Indian Ocean to the contemporary successor states of Yugoslavia, as well as racism and Jews in modern Britain and Germany and migratory movements throughout much of the modern world.
