History Curriculum Enrichment Sessions - Year 10-13

These Zoom sessions have been designed to offer additional teaching on aspects of the National History Curriculum, for both GCSE and A-Level students.

A-Level Session: This session aims to enhance A-Level curriculum teaching on Historical Enquiries, by investigating different identities within society.

A critic in the guise of a jester: the anti-racism of A.B.C Merriman-Labour

In 1909 Sierra Leonan writer A.B.C Merriman-Labor published Britons Through Negro Spectacles, a book that brilliantly satirized the colonial travel-writing that was extremely popular at the turn of the twentieth century. This session will explore the life and writings of A.B.C Merriman-Labor, considering how he used humour to subvert the colonial gaze, turning the lens on Britons themselves.

GCSE Session: This session aims to enhance GCSE curriculum teaching on Medieval Studies (500-1500).

Remembering Medieval Rebellion

Having borne witness to the Jacquerie of 1358 and the Peasants Revolt of 1381, the fourteenth century is often conceptualised in European history writing as a watershed moment. Yet, we can find traces of rebellious activity much earlier. In this session, we will examine the Norman Peasants Revolt of 996 and the London uprising of 1196 and explore how they have been remembered since.
