Politics and History
The impact of technology on politics and the politics of technology is profound. The Politics & History disciplines (incorporating Global Studies) draw on a range of disciplinary perspectives to provide students with a unique insight into how power operates in the world and how technology transforms the ways in which we live and interact with each other.
