  • Overview

    This module will focus upon the historical reputations of a number of important figures from Europe, America,
    Africa, Britain and Scotland, from the medieval period to the twenty-first century. As well as locating these
    figures in the context of their own times, the module will also assess the significance attached to their lives
    through the differing interpretations of scholars in different periods. The module will, therefore, contribute to an
    understanding of the construction of reputation, the use of varied documentary and electronic sources and a
    sense of past individual, national and cultural identities.
