HIST185 PO - History and Historiography

When Offered: Last offered spring 2018.
Instructor(s): H. Rezai
Credit: 1

The goal of this course is to introduce students to major theoretical approaches in the study of history. As such, we will read and discuss seminal texts and important themes that have shaped the writing of history in the 19th and 20th centuries. We will examine how historians investigate and interpret events in the past and craft history. We will pay particular attention to how scholars of history employ evidence and structure their narratives. Furthermore, we will explore how in their construction of historical narratives they borrow from other disciplines, such as philosophy, sociology, critical theory, and anthropology. Alongside our theoretical and methodological journey, we will also travel intellectually to a variety of regions like Europe, Africa, and the Middle East, investigating different historiographies to learn how scholars across regions inform each other’s works. Letter grade only. Previously offered as HIST150  PO.
