This module introduces you to French experiences of the 'annees noires' (the 'dark years') of the German Occupation of France and more especially to the ways in which these have been remembered, represented and interpreted in the art, film and literature of post-war France. It examines the reasons for this period's uneasy status as 'unfinished history' and explores some of the creative representations and reinterpretations of events that have been produced from the aftermath of war through to the present day. The module also involves the study of contemporary theories about cultural memory, from France and elsewhere. It considers how these theories have evolved and explores productive ways of drawing upon them to interpret the primary works studied.
This module will introduce you to some of the most significant works within the broad area of global history, including key examples of more focussed studies. The module takes the form of a master-class and we will read key texts alongside reviews and academic discussions to illuminate fully the approach and contribution of the individual work within a broader context. Approaching global history through specific examples will provide you with a solid historiographical awareness, but also familiarize you with a collection of scholarly classics as examples of different academic approaches. The works we will be covering include:
Eric Hobsbawm, Age of Extremes (1995)
Alfred Crosby, Ecological Imperialism (1986)
Edward Said, Orientalism (1978)
Jared Diamond, Guns, Germs, and Steel (1997)
Philip A. Kuhn, Soulstealers (1992)
Dipesh Chakrabarty, Provincializing Europe (2000)
Erez Manela, The Wilsonian Moment (2006)
A.G. Hopkins, Global History (2006)
Mark Mazower, Governing the World (2013)

literature in English translation, focusing on authors from Eastern Europe, Germany, Austria-Hungary, Austria, Italy, France, and England.

Biomaterials play an essential role in Biomedical Engineering and Tissue Engineering. The understanding of key properties of biomaterials for these applications require a thorough understanding of materials chemistry, physical properties, processing and their interaction with biological systems. The module will be delivered through a series of lectures, as well as sessions focusing on problem solving and will feature one guest industrial lecture from a senior staff member from a leading company in the field of biomaterials.
