HIST 0300 Historical Approaches

This tutorial explores the ways in which modern historians have approached their discipline.  When history became part of the university curriculum in the late nineteenth century, the focus was on high politics and law, usually in the context of European nation states.  Since then the interests and methodologies of historians have widened considerably, often in conversation with other disciplines.  Sample topics include the impact of Marxism, the Annales school, feminism, post-colonial studies, anthropology, economics, literary and social theory.
