Historical Research is based on the triangulation of International History, the History of Health and Scottish History; a configuration that is further interlocked by the Scottish Oral History Centre, which also leads our knowledge exchange endeavours.
Scottish Oral History Centre: The key research questions currently driving the Scottish Oral History Centre pivot around how oral history approaches deepen our understanding of: 1) The Arts and youth culture in modern urban society 2) The experiences of war 3) Cultures of work and the impact of work upon the body and personal identity.
International History: This group investigates relations among both state and non-state actors in international society. Research questions include: 1) How can we understand social dynamics in the international sphere? 2) What role do national, linguistic, racial or ethnic identities play in the evolution of politics at both the national and international levels? 3) How do both state and non-state actors perceive and respond to threats to their security?
History of Health: This group’s research draws on techniques from across the disciplines and seeks to impact upon contemporary societies by drawing perspectives from the past in order to provide fresh approaches to today’s health challenges and problems. Members of this group for the core of the Centre for the Social History of Health and Healthcare (CSHHH) Glasgow, which address the following research questions: 1) What factors have shaped the health of individuals, communities and societies in the modern period? 2) What has driven the development of healthcare systems and health technologies in societies since c. 1800? 3) What are the social, cultural, economic and scientific outcomes of health crises and lifestyle choices?
Scottish History: This group endeavours to internationalize Scottish History in British, European and imperial contexts. We are also convinced of the importance of interdisciplinary work in the field of technology with specific reference to wealth creation, communication, innovation, invention and espionage. Research questions include: 1) How can the Scottish political and constitutional heritage inform the current national debate? 2) To what extent is a knowledge of and acquaintance with Scotland’s past vital for national well-being and confidence? 3) How can we set a research agenda for the social union of Scotland and the rest of the UK?
