Photographic History Resources
In this page you will find all the history resources recommended in each module plus any others that we feel are particularly useful or interesting. They are listed by country, in alphabetical order. Sometimes the link leads to a specific part of a larger institution (like the geographical society pages of the National Library of France) where photographic collections are searchable. As you find useful pages please add them
The MA Bibliography represents the readings compiled for not only this year's MA, but from all the preceding years. You will find these writings listed in alphabetical order by author. We have also provided links here to all our uploaded files, in case you can't remember while week of which module you read something. Please feel free to add articles to this bibliography that are required reading in any week of the programme.
These biographies have been compiled by members of previous cohorts on the MA. They make for fascinating reading but may need editing. Please feel free to edit them, add to them, comment on them. They are resources for your own use, but should be used with care.

Online PhD Theses. The British Library working with UK Universities have introduced a new service called EThOS that provides free access to online PhD theses produced at participating UK Higher Education institutions - http://ethos.bl.uk/HEIList.do The database contains the details of 250,000+ theses with the full text being added over time (and by request) for theses from participating institutions. Some theses are already available for download, but you may find that you need to request others that you are interested in. If you request a thesis, there is a delay while copyright permission is sought and the text is digitized. Registration to use the service is free.
Citation Style: Chicago
This MA Programme relies upon Chicago as our preferred form of citation. When consulting resources on how to use Chicago in your papers, be sure to note that Chicago has a different format for the footnotes, or endnotes, than the bibliography.
