Ancient and Modern History

St Anne’s is well-equipped (and correspondingly eager) to teach Ancient and Modern History, since we have in-house tutors in both Ancient History (Dr Ed Bispham) and Modern History. Amongst the modernists Peter Ghosh has a research interest in Gibbon and classical tradition and we much enjoying the Historiography course that runs ‘From Tacitus to Weber’.  But of course ‘Ancient and Modern History’ embraces history in its entirety, and is by no means limited to specific connections of this kind, important though they are. St Anne’s also has a strong Classics department and a flourishing Classics Society, providing many opportunities to share ideas with other students and graduates at various stages in their degrees.
