War, Media and Society
The School of History at the University of Kent offers a great environment in which to research and study. Situated in a beautiful cathedral city with its own dynamic history, the University is within easy reach of the main London archives and is convenient for travelling to mainland Europe.
The School of History is a lively, research-led department where postgraduate students are given the opportunity to work alongside academics recognised as experts in their respective fields. The School was placed second nationally for ‘world-class’ research in themost recent Research Assessment Exercise, and consistently scores highly in the National Student Survey.
There is a good community spirit within the School, which includes regular postgraduate social meetings, weekly seminars and a comprehensive training programme with the full involvement of the School’s academic staff. Thanks to the wide range of teaching and research interests in the School, we can offer equally wide scope for research supervision covering British, European, African and American history.
This MA programme explores how conflict occurs across a variety of countries and landscapes in the late 19th and 20th centuries, and how such conflict is managed and presented through media and propaganda. It takes in different types of conflict, from conventional trench warfare and geopolitical stand-offs to guerrilla tactics and civil defence initiatives. It also examines the application of technology in warfare, the impact of the media on public opinion, along with the increasing importance of the home front in 20th-century warfare. The compulsory module provides a strong interpretative and conceptual backbone to the programme and introduces you to the particular demands of postgraduate study in history.
