Brett Sanders


Having completed my BA (Hons) and MA at Coventry University between 2004-2008, I began teaching in a voluntary capacity in September 2009. I led seminars on ‘The Rise of the Modern Nation-State’, a first year undergraduate module. From January 2010 I embarked on an hourly paid teaching role that included delivering lectures and seminars for ‘Empire to Welfare: Britain 1900-1951’. These teaching experiences allowed me to progress to a Graduate Teaching Assistant post beginning in September 2011 which broadened my teaching responsibilities to include delivering seminars for ‘Race and Racism in Britain’, a sociology module, and helping to develop the Department’s ‘A Graduate Career’ employability module whilst continuing with my existing responsibilities. I also completed my PG Cert. in Higher Education Professional Practice. In May 2013 I was appointed as a Lecturer in History with an emphasis on developing the School's Environmental History provision which includes ‘Key Themes in Environmental History’ at level two and ‘Preservation, Protest and Justice’ at level three which seeks to critically analyse the history of environmentalism and environmental thought.
