    I’m looking to do a history project as an extra piece of work for over the summer, but I don’t know which topic would appeal most to universities. Is it better to do something which is on all the university courses I am applying to, or something personal to do with family history but which may not be relevant to all the history courses?

    It’s obvious which one it’s better to do, but tbh unless you are going to Oxbridge nobody is going to care. There are no caps any more you know, and history is super cheap to teach.

    I would do the one you’ll actually enjoy or else something you’ll enjoy a little less but is a little more relevant. I wouldn’t do something you won’t enjoy at all: life’s too short.

    Family names sounds excellent if you are into say Victorian history. You would track the movements of your family and see if they correlate with major population movements of the time for people of their class and region.

    It was either between doing a project on medieval history, which is on all the courses and is something I haven’t had the chance to study in school yet, and the other one was to do with the contrast between WW2 life in England and Malaysia (being half Malay and half English.) thank you for the advice

    RESEARCH.

    That is what appeals to Universities. So, a simple project to do with local history, your own family history etc is a perfect way to do this. There are loads of online resources (ancestry etc) and you can often user these at big public libraries for free. Also, archive research work is another good thing to get experience of – all big towns/cities will have a local records office/archives so look at the online catalogue, find some stuff that interests you, and go and look at it. Staff will help you if you aren’t sure about how it all works (ie. ‘ordering documents’, where to sit etc). Take some id, pencils and a big notebook – primary research can be incredibly rewarding, and addictive!

    I don’t see why that would help. Your knowledge of a certain time and place in history will impress far less than your skill and diligence in investigating said time and place.

    Or you could spend your time reading this : http://www.amazon.co.uk/Studying-His…/dp/1403987343

    Which will give you an insight into what ‘doing History’ at Uni is all about – and will really give you some meaningful things to talk about in your PS.

Topic 1: Mahabharata through a Readers eye

How have local beliefs interacted, shaped and been influenced by other ‘greater traditions’ to form different versions and stories of the Mahabharata and how this epic has been projected through various forms.

Objectives:

Ø It will help the students to understand how the great epic Mahabharata, as an oral tradition, was transmitted from generation to generation.

Ø It will help them to become aware of the fact that when societies meet with each other, they combine and interact in order to form new traditions in societies.

Ø It will help them to explore how this epic has been portrayed in different ways across the country in different forms.

Ø It will help them appreciate the fact that the Mahabharata was not written by one person, but was an oral tradition, reflected in cultures across the subcontinent in various forms like dance, music, stories, paintings etc.

Ø Students will learn to critically analyze the position, and status of women during that period.

Ø Students will also be able to understand and evaluate the growth and development of the varna system prevalent at that time.

Methodology:

1. Students can interview their parents, grandparents, relatives and other people in their locality to know about their stories/sources/perceptions of Mahabharat & social and political life of the people Mahabharat.

2. Next, in groups of four or five, the students should share and discuss their ideas & findings. If the class consists of children from different regions, then those with similar findings and region can be grouped together. During the discussion, the students could focus on questions like:

* Which story did the respondent choose to narrate and why?

* Had you heard this story before?

* Was this a common story that is prevalent all over India? Or was it different?

* Did the story include things/places/temples/structures/people/practices that are closely related to your locality or situated close to it?

* How did the respondent feel about the characters of the Mahabharat? Do they feel their actions were justified?

3. The next step would be to find out about an art-form that reflects stories from the Mahabharata. For instance, the Indian classical dances have items portraying scenes from the epic. Pandavani from Jharkhand and Yakshagana from Karnataka are two examples of traditional theatre forms that depict tales from the epic. Besides this, each nook and corner of the country has a temple or site with paintings and sculptures related to the Mahabharata. In quite a few cases, the local deity is identified with a principal deity. Students could find the information from books and the internet; or, if there is an art form that is prevalent in the locality itself, it would be highly advisable that the students talk to the locals about their experience, interact with the artists and visit a workshop/site/performance. The students should be divided into groups according to the form of art they investigated. Thus, each group should focus on any one art form: paintings, sculptures, dances, songs or theatre etc. In these groups, the students have to compile their findings, do some research if necessary, and discuss and interpret the findings (keeping in mind the objective of writing a report).

4. Preparation for the reader’s theatre can only be started when all the students have submitted the project report. For the reader’s theatre, the students have to prepare their own script.

* It should include a part for each student.

* It could include sound effects, (preferably drums and other instruments played by the students themselves) and songs.

* You could look up the internet for further guidelines. Basically, the script should include various local stories to show the interspersing of traditions and songs and props reflecting the discussed art forms.

5. After the script has been made, each student should be instructed to prepare his or her own speech, which should not exceed 5 minutes.

Presentation:

1. In the form of theatrical play or in any other dance art form (may seek help from Mr. Nair).

2. Spontaneous speeches can also be a part of presentation.

3. Panel discussion by students can also be presented.

When I was in class 10th I chose to make an OlympiStadia or an Olympic Stadium which resembled the Greece Olympics of 1896.

I made the field of the stadium in the centre by pasting a Green Hard Paper on a carton which I shaped as a stadium by some cutting and putting staples. Then on the green paper I pasted some peeled of crayons to give it a look of grass.then I made the track again on a hard paper of maroon colour ( or you can colour it maroon just as a track).

Then by thermacol I made the steps by putting on layers.

Then I made the audience by pasting 3 pieces of thermacol balls and after then colouring them.

Then I painted the Outer surface of the stadium made outta carton or cardboard , black.

Then I used stick to and then to one end I attached a photograph related to Olympics and then dig it into the thermacol steps.

We got selected in the Annual Exhibition.

I would surely, in an edit share the photo of the project after cleaning it.

Hope that helps.
