Teaching Fellow: Early Medieval History,
University College London.
UCL History Department is distinctive for the breadth of its expertise, which spans the fourthmillennium BC to the contemporary world. The department seeks to appoint a Teaching Fellow to cover the following modules in the 2014-15 session:
HIST6201: Europe in the Early Middle Ages, 400-1000 To deliver a programme of weekly lectures and tutorial classes (three tutorial classes for a module cohort of 45 students) over the two teaching terms.

The course begins with an outline historical survey to enable students to identify the major settings, people and places (fall of the Roman Empire, rise of Islam, Carolingian and Ottonian Empires etc.) and then proceeds thematically, dealing with developments in a series of subject areas (e.g. states, religious experience, towns and trade, legal structures and dispute settlement) over the entire period.
