History at Aston focuses on the modern and contemporary world. Informed by exciting research, our teaching uses digital approaches to explore the past in a different way.

We look at history in its global dimension, from slavery to the abolitionist movement to the origins of internationalism and the more recent challenges of globalisation, digital technologies, and humanitarian politics.
