    Exciting Opportunities in Humanities

    It has been an exciting first half term in Humanities so far this year. Here are some of our highlights:

    This Autumn our Politics A level students attended the yearly 'Congress to Campus' talk on contemporary US politics. Hosted by the Eccles Centre for American Studies at the British Library. Speakers included leading academics from UCL and Oxford Universities; also in attendance were former members of US Congress, Republican Luke Messer IN-06 and Democrat Nick Rahall WV-03. Students questioned the panel in the energetic style popularised by shows such as the BBCs 'Question Time. Our young political scientists spent the day at the conference enthralled in a forensic oral examination of current political events i.e. Donald trumps tweets, which the politics department at Chobham refer to as the US Executive's media age neo-imperial project; impacting international money markets in less than 49 characters! And symbolised in the political cult mantra 'Make America Great Again'.  Students also considered the degree to which Civil Rights for some marginalised groups in the US may be being actively eroded by neo conservative joined up governmental thinking via recent Supreme Court appointments and state legislatures. Students had the added benefit of receiving first-hand, answers to their questions from former US policy makers on a number of specialist and controversial political issues. 

    Politics students Timi, Tohura, Summer and Isabella concluded post conference that 'partisan policy divisions between the GOP and the Democrats in some parts of the US are very difficult to pin down in the current climate! There's very little difference between them'. 

    Whilst Esosa, Rakib, Onate, Alex, Joshua and Adi came to the consensus that ''Some citizens are more equal than others in the US political system, Washington is increasingly the playground for marginal vested interests''.

    Last week our Year 13 Historians went to Senate House Library to carry out independent research for their coursework. Our students were first shown by the university how to carry out independent research before spending the day making full use of the resources the library has to offer. Some absolutely fantastic research was achieved by all; at the end of the day, some even opted to stay behind to continue independently! Time flies when you are having fun!

    On Tuesday 12th November members of the Humanities Department organised and ran ‘Faith Day’ for all Year 7 students. Students spent the day learning about a range of religions and beliefs different from their own to create active citizens who are more aware of the diversity which exists in their local community. All students had the opportunity to visit different places of worship across London, and learn about Hinduism or Humanism through external speakers and school based activities. Overall, it was a great day for all staff and students involved. We look forward to organising this again next year!
