We are the History Subject Area at Newman University, Birmingham. Ours is a unique place to study and research the past. We have a cohort of undergraduate students, a small group of postgraduate and visiting scholars and a dedicated team of research-active historians whose interests range from Ancient Rome to modern America.

We always have lots going on so feel free to browse our posts here – we include posts from staff, students and visiting scholars on a range of different topics. If you can’t get enough information on the Subject Area why not follow us on Twitter and Facebook or visit our homepage?



Our students sit at the heart of all we do. Why not check out some of their activities in our blog posts or have a look at the Newman History Society Facebook page?
