DESCRIPTION

This special 300-level unit addresses the most critical of all historical questions: what is historical evidence, what different forms can historical evidence take, how can and should the different forms of evidence be used, and what are the historical questions they can and cannot help us answer. The unit explores a special theme (which may vary from year to year) and students examine a range of different kinds of evidence in relation to it - e.g. written sources, statistics, images, artefacts and archaeological traces. The unit examines both theoretical and methodological issues. The theme will be addressed, and the varieties of evidence examined, by reference to four fields of specialisation: Australian, Asian, modern European, and medieval European history. The unit is designed both to consolidate and build on the knowledge and skills built up in the History major and to form a bridge to future uses of History such as Honours.

WEIGHT: 12.5%

ASSESSMENT: Class participation (10%), 500-word discussion-board postings (10%), 750-word bibliographical exercise (15%), group project, including oral presentation and 1,250-word written report (20%); 2,500-word essay (45%).

TEACHING PATTERN: one 2-hour seminar per week; and one 1-day conference.
