CREDIT POINTS 15

Course Co-ordinator: Dr J Oliver

Lectures examine the first colonisations of the North and trace how these earlier populations established the cultural, ethnic and religious diversity that defined later periods. Attention is also directed towards understanding the changing nature of contacts between indigenous peoples and European settlers. In particular, the course draws on a series of case-studies to examine:

2 one-hour lectures a week with 2 reading weeks (16 lectures in total) and 3 two-hour tutorials.

1st Attempt: 1 two-hour written examination (50%); continuous assessment in form of an analytical poster (50%).

Resit: 1 two-hour written examination (50%) plus original in-course assessment carried forward (50%).
