    Course description
    The MA forms a key teaching component of the new Centre for the Cultural History of War, reflecting developments within history and related disciplines, including cultural history, museum studies, screen studies, psychology and trauma studies, as well as women's and gender studies. The Memory and War core course is designed to share interdisciplinary knowledge regarding memory as theory and how it is applied in the cultural history of war and in public history. This programme has the benefits of expertise in several fields, and there will be many innovative options such as Gender and War, as well as a new option entitled Filming War, Filming History. This option brings together the expertise of cultural historians of war, curators and educators from the Imperial War Museum, filmmakers and media trainers. The programme is designed to combine intellectual work on cultural history, war and representation, as well as the practical skills directing this intellectual content into a vocational portfolio through the process of a digital film project.
