Although my own competency is in the area of modern British history, broadly conceived to include the British world, the purpose of this course is to enable you to write a research paper on a topic of your choice.  Accordingly the focus is not on a particular thematic or problem but on the process of research and writing itself.  We will also use the class to discuss more general matters such as the state of the profession, the discipline of History, and your own professional development - looking forward to presenting your own work at conferences, developing a dissertation project, publishing and getting a job.
