Charlotte Tomlinson our new intern writes about exciting new research activities are on offer through her School of History internship.

Special Collections is collaborating with the School of History on a new internship programme. This is an exciting new project underpinned by the potential for collaboration and innovation.

Charlotte Tomlinson, a postgraduate student in the School, has taken up this position.  She will be working over the next year to enhance links between the School of History and Special Collections with a focus on both undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.

The School of History offers a wide range of opportunities for collaboration.  These include modules ranging from medieval literature to decolonisation in the modern Caribbean, and engagement with primary sources from level one skills modules through to the final year dissertation. Students will benefit from both the knowledge and skills development that arise from working with our resources.  In turn greater engagement will raise the profile of Special Collections in the School of History and beyond.

Charlotte will be a point of contact between Special Collections and staff/students of the School. She will be developing activities including induction workshops and drop-in coaching sessions, mapping resources to reading lists and producing skills training materials.
