History Research Group

The History Research Group brings together historians working across the University of Greenwich.

Our research interests are diverse chronologically, thematically and geographically - ranging from Britain to Russia to South Asia to the Middle East, and from the early modern to the contemporary, with common interests in maritime, imperial, social and environmental histories.

We welcome applications from prospective research students in these and related fields. Doctoral students associated with the group are working on a variety of topics including: military periodicals and the making of a professional officer class, St Alfege's Church; memorials to those who died in the sinking of the Titanic, the Indian Army in the Second World War and the role of archaeology in Mandate Palestine.
