Syllabus

How do historians know what they know? What is it that historians do? And how do they do what they do? This course is an introduction to the way that historians work. We will look at everything from hand-written documents, to photographs, to material culture: this is a practical, hands-on course that will encourage students to explore and experience the actual materials and methods of analysis used by historians. Those taking this course will leave with a good understanding of the ways in which historians explore history through a wide variety of sources, the methods that historians have used to examine them, and the various ways in which history is presented to specialists and to the wider public.
