The Craft of History

This module offers a systematic introduction to the fields and methods of historical research. It combines weekly lectures on the basic types of historical scholarship with tutorials containing a seminar-style lab component that train students in the core skills of research, reading and writing. Tutorial and lab sessions will consist of a series of specially designed hands-on assignments, intensive discussion and close supervision. By the end of the module, students will be able to effectively read historical scholarship and sources, and to conceptualize, research, and complete a simple history project on their own.
