HIST 1200

HIST 1200

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2019-2020.

How can we learn about the past? How do we tell stories about the past? How do we judge the truth of falsity of evidence? Writing History seminars introduce students to many different ways of interpreting and writing about the past, and to the wide range of sources that historians use: from diaries to tax rolls, from scraps of textile to films and advertisements. Topics and readings vary by section.

When Offered Fall, Spring.

Satisfies Requirement First-Year Writing Seminar.
