This Project was submitted in partial satisfaction of the requirements of an MA in Historical Research within the Department of History, Classics and Archaeology, Birkbeck College, University of London; and in partial satisfaction of the requirements of the module, Historians at Large: Public History and Practice (Tutor: Mike Berlin). The Project, set out as a portfolio, was structured to include all mandatory sections for the Project set out in the assessment guidelines:
- Historiographical background and historical context
- Audience / stakeholders
- Justification and Impact
- Discussion of problems / challenges / risks
The portfolio is written in a style appropriate for a public history intervention; with a minimum of citations (although the authors of direct quotes are always acknowledged). A ‘manifesto’ setting the Project within an identified framework of public history definitions is included, too. The Project also includes a detailed bibliography for a reader to use to explore further.
