The class meets two times 80 minutes a week. The precise format will vary between seminar discussions, workshops in the humanitarian collections of Carleton Archives and Research Collections, virtual seminars on the transnational history of the environment with fellow history students of the course of Soenke Kunkel at the John F. Kennedy Institute for North American Studies of the Free University of Berlin, experiments with digital methods conducive to transnational reflections, interviews with guest speakers and visits to close by events and exhibitions.

The Historian’s Craft: The First World War, Histories and Memories, HIST2809B, winter 2017


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.
