Professor Broomhall teaches the following units:
Medieval and Early Modern Studies
Medieval and early modern studies research at UWA aims to uncover the pre-modern world and the effect the past has in modern times.
Classics and Ancient History
Classics and Ancient History research at UWA investigates the ways in which ancient cultures have shaped our modern world.
Studying History introduces you to the way we create the collective memory of the human race. This is not as easy as it sounds, as our memory can play tricks.
English and Cultural Studies
With English and Cultural Studies, you will explore many areas of reading, writing and performance including the study of literature, film, theatre and creative and professional writing.
