Cultural encounters across the Indian Ocean: Year 12 History and Politics taster session
The ways in which ideas play out in different contexts and locations is an important part of both history and politics.
In this taster session, third-year History and Politics student Posy will look at how nationalism and cosmopolitanism interacted in the late nineteenth century and early twentieth century, in the world of the Indian Ocean. She’ll examine how people moving across the ocean and encountering 'others' in port cities and plantations helped shaped the twentieth-century idea of the nation.
This taster session is for Year 12 students, from UK state schools, who will be applying to university in the next academic year (2021-22). It's ideal for students looking to apply for History and Politics at highly selective universities. We'll give priority to students from our link areas in Tyne and Wear, Brent, Ealing, Westminster and Peterborough, but we hope to be able to accommodate everyone who applies.
