New MA in early modern political discourse

This brand new MA in the history of early modern political discourse sounds excellent (announced at H-Net).

Over the last forty years the “history of political thought” or of “ideas” has been transformed into the history of “political discourse”. This has involved a move away from a set of canonical texts to a wider range of material, including manuscript as well as printed texts, petitions, legal depositions and rulings, speeches, broadsides, satires, newsbooks, bodily gestures and iconography.

On top of that, the delivery of the course will be quite innovative, as it’s a collaborative affair between academics at UEA and Hull (students can be registered at either institution), using a Virtual Research Environment (VRE): web-based video conferencing, extensive use of online resources, etc.

    Oh, this would have been just the ticket for me had it been on offer twenty years ago. . . .

    Doesn’t it just make your mouth water?

    (Now I just want a proper job so I can put on things like this…)
