Nevertheless you need practice in text commentaries on historical or contemporary documents, and particularly in being sure not to do a literary text commentary on a historical document.
So in the last three sessions of the seminar, individual students will be presenting short text commentaries of maximum fifteen minutes. On Wednesday I will be noting who is doing which.
Here are the dates of the documents which will be analayzed by the students.
Everyone will study each document at home before the class, so that they are ready to ask questions and make comments about each document.

- Rivers of Blood
- Macpherson report summary
- Chicken Tikka Masala
