Approaches to History (HIH1401)

15 credits

How do historians write history?  How do approaches vary and what questions can historians ask?  This module introduces and explores key issues and concepts discussed in the study of history across many periods, including power, gender, wealth and poverty, religion and class.  It will thus introduce students to the working practices and interests of the academic staff and to the variety of possible approaches to history that they can explore in the rest of their degree programme.
