LSE-Columbia Double MA in International and World History

Video Series on International History and Dissertation Research Produced in 2014

Madiha Bataineh, a graduate on the LSE-Columbia Dual Masters programme, has made a short series of videos about researching a topic in international history. The project, which draws on the experiences of a number of her contemporaries in the programme, explores their research topics and how they were drawn to investigate them in the archives. It is an exploration of the historian's work and its many twists and turns. The three short films can be found here: Projects in International History|, Letters from the Archive|, and A Thought on International History|.
