Dr Richard Gaunt, School of History

Dr Gaunt works on late eighteenth and early nineteenth century British history, with a particular specialism in the political and electoral history of the age. Research interests encompass work on national political figures such as Sir Robert Peel, the Duke of Wellington and Benjamin Disraeli as well as individuals with a strong Nottinghamshire connection, such as the 4th Duke of Newcastle (of Clumber Park) and William Edward and Godfrey Tallents (solicitors, land stewards and political agents of Newark).

Dr Gaunt has specialist research interests in the use of biographies, diaries and autobiographies and maintains scholarly interest in the political cartoons and caricatures of the age. These have given rise to publications in a range of academic and general readership outlets, to reviews and review articles and to exhibitions. He has also developed a number of web-based applications, drawing on research in the manuscripts and special collections held at Nottingham, in particular, a website exploring political themes from the time of the 4th Duke of Newcastle including working class unrest, electioneering and issues relating to Ireland.

Professor Cynthia Marsh, Professor of Russian Drama and Literature, Department of Russian and Slavonic Studies

Professor Cynthia Marsh began the study of Russian after leaving school, by taking an intensive course to A-level at the then Holborn College of Law, Languages and Commerce, in Central London. She then went on to gain BA hons Russian (first class) at the University of Nottingham and spent a year at the School of Slavonic and East European Studies, University of London, completing an MA Area Studies: Russia, before going on to full time research there on the relationship between poetry and painting in the work of the Russian poet Max Voloshin. This research culminated in a PhD, entitled M.A.Voloshin: Artist-Poet: A investigation into the synaesthetic aspects of his poetry (awarded in 1979.)

In 1972, after teaching Russian literature part-time on the University of London External BA honours course at Holborn, Professor Cynthia Marsh was appointed as a lecturer at Nottingham, and subsequently appointed senior lecturer and then Professor of Russian Drama and Literature.

In 2002 she was awarded a Lord Dearing Award for Outstanding Teaching by the University and subsequently became a Member of the Higher Education Academy. She currently teaches modules on Russian theatre and Russian drama and her research interests continue to focus on Russian theatre, publishing mainly on Chekhov and Gorky.

As taught in Spring Semester 2010,

This module examines the founding first decade of the Fifth Republic by focusing principally, though not exclusively, on the personality and political ideas of Charles de Gaulle.

It begins by examining his emergence as the providential leader of the Resistance, to the frustrations of the Liberation and his thwarted plans for the constitutional renaissance of France, through the Fourth Republic and the wilderness years to his return in 1958, before turning to focus on the new regime and tracing the political history of the Fifth Republic between 1958 and 1969: the period Pierre Viansson-Ponté christened ‘la République gaullienne’.

The main, though by no means exclusive axes of enquiry will be the constitutional mutation of the regime and the political narrative in the period.

This module is suitable for undergraduate level 3 study.

As taught Autumn Semester 2010

The module introduces those statistical methods and concepts most applicable in economics. There are no pre-requisites: In particular, no previous knowledge of statistics will be assumed. The analysis of economic data necessarily proceeds in an environment where there is uncertainty about the processes that generated the data. Statistical methods provide a framework for understanding and characterising this uncertainty.

These concepts are most conveniently introduced through the analysis of single-variable problems. However, economists are most often concerned about relationships among variables. The module builds towards the study of regression analysis, which is often applied by economists in studying such relationships.

Module Code: L11206

As taught Autumn semester 2010.

Functional analysis begins with a marriage of linear algebra and metric topology. These work together in a highly effective way to elucidate problems arising from differential equations. Solutions are sought in an infinite dimensional space of functions.

This module paves the way by establishing the principal theorems (all due in part to the great Polish mathematician Stefan Banach) and exploring their diverse consequences. Topics to be covered will include:

– norm topology and topological isomorphism;
– boundedness of operators;
– compactness and finite dimensionality;
– extension of functionals;
– weak*-compactness;
– sequence spaces and duality;
– basic properties of Banach algebras.

Suitable for: Undergraduate students Level Four

As taught Autumn Semester 2010

Most history students, when applying to university, say they want to widen their knowledge of the past. As a School we take you at your word, teaching history from AD 500 onwards. This module introduces you to Europe in the Middle Ages (500-1500), a period in which Nottingham University has a distinguished tradition, built up by Jim Holt, Donald Bullough, Robert Markus, Bernard Hamilton and Michael Jones, and continued, we hope, by ourselves. The period covered by the module runs from the end of the Roman Empire in the west to the Renaissance. The legacy of this period is still with us: disputed notions of what constitutes European ‘unity’; profound divisions between West and East (and North and South); clashes between Christian and non-Christian cultures, especially Judaism and Islam. The module will introduce you to current historical debates and to a range of primary sources, in English translation, which will allow you to test your existing critical skills on unfamiliar and challenging material; in this respect it links effectively with the Learning History module. We hope that you will enjoy learning about this distant but formative period of European history, highly relevant to many of the dramatic changes taking place in Europe and the wider world today. If you do, remember that you can continue to study it throughout your time here.

School of History:

Our teaching and learning methods, at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, are strongly focused on 'active learning'. We emphasise that effective learning in History comes especially from one's own enquiries, critical thinking, and reflection.

You will therefore be encouraged to become independent learners and thinkers, whilst being guided by expert tutors. Active participation and involvement in class discussion and group activities are therefore given priority as a means of developing skills required for learning, researching and employment.

Our academic staff are central to our success and create our lively and inclusive research culture. All of them are nationally or internationally recognized scholars in their fields.
