Students undertaking the Honours program in History enrol in one Field Seminar and one Approach Seminar, which run concurrently from Week 1 to Week 13 of Semester 1. In the Approach Seminar, students examine one particular conceptual or theoretical approach to historical writing and research (examples include: 'Historical Approaches to Food and Eating'; 'Violence in History'; 'The Problem of the Text'). Students explore different applications of this approach in a diverse array of contexts (geographical and temporal) in order to understand the ways this approach has developed and its implications for the field and the students' own practice as historians. Students will choose their topic from a range of three or four options.
