Dr Bryony Onciul


Bryony Onciul has been recognised for her outstanding teaching and was nominated for a teaching award in 2013 and commended for her teaching in 2017. Her modules are innovative and engaging.

Bryony’s UG year 1 core module HIC1200 Public History runs for two semesters and introduces students to the field of public history. It brings together theory and practice through site visits, oral history projects, digital apps, and student placements.

HIC2200 Public History Project follows on from HIC1200 as an optional second year module which enables students to work collaboratively with external bodies, such as museums, archives and heritage sites to develop original research and public history outputs, such as exhibitions (both physical and virtual), public talks, articles, planning reports, and school workshops.

Bryony’s third year module, HIC3311 Indigenous History, Colonialism and Identity in Western Canada is a research led course that speaks to Bryony’s key research interests.

In addition to these UG modules, Bryony contributes to team teaching, and is currently developing a new MA and MRes. She supervises PhD students researching topics related to her research interests and welcomes inquiries from potential post-graduate MRes and PhD students.
