HSTY2691 - Writing History

Semester 2, 2012  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Nicholas Alfred Eckstein


How do we write history? How and why do our approaches to events, lives, and ideas differ from those taken by historians in the past? What is the relationship between historical scholarship and society? To answer these questions, we will examine History's history, social theories (e.g. Marxism, feminism, structuralism, post-structuralism), various historical methods, and processes of historical research and publication. Far from dry discussion, this lively unit focuses on debates that fire up historians, past and present.
