Lecturer in Public History
The appointment will be on UCL Grade 8.
Applications are invited for a full-time Lecturer in Public History, tenable from 4 January 2022. The main purpose of the role is to bring expertise in public history to the department; to support the delivery and development of the new MA Public History at UCL East; to extend and deepen the role of public history at UCL; and to enhance the History Department’s work in all areas (research, teaching, administration, and knowledge exchange).
Public History at UCL East.
A new MA in Public History at UCL East launches next Autumn with the first cohort to be admitted from September 2022. The programme will combine UCL’s strengths and expertise in history and the public understanding of the past with new partnerships with the other education and heritage bodies on the Olympic Park, local communities in East London, and a sustained onsite engagement with UCL’s own museum and special collections, especially those relating to the history of London.
All these developments are taking place in the context of new, purpose-built teaching and learning spaces designed with public engagement and object-based learning in mind. There will be access to the most up to date digital and audio-visual labs to test and develop innovative public history dissemination and engagement practices and techniques.
The UCL programme aims to provide students with an advanced understanding of public history in both theoretical and practical terms. Rather than taking a narrow or overly-concentrated approach, the UCL East programme will introduce students to a broad range of public history approaches.
This post sits in the ‘School for Creative and Cultural Industries’. The post holder will be co-located at UCL East and the Bloomsbury campus.
You should be able to demonstrate your contributions to the field of public history, through a combination of research, education and/or knowledge exchange, depending on prior experience. You must have a demonstrable aptitude for pedagogical innovation and a track record in bringing members of the public into their research and teaching, whether as active participants, practitioners or advisers
