|Coordinator(s)||Nathan Wise (firstname.lastname@example.org)|
This unit is an exploration of the different forms history takes and the ways history is applied in different fields (such as journalism, photography, filmmaking, archaeology or geography), in today's world. The unit gives students a sense of the various fields and professions into which an academic historical education can take them, and the value of various skills learned in studying at this level. Students learn to locate, 'read' and employ historical sources beyond the traditional and textual (e.g. movies, television, photographs, maps, political cartoons, music) and are introduced to cross-disciplinary interpretations that can enrich our historical understanding.
Note: Students are expected to purchase prescribed material. Please note that textbook requirements may vary from one teaching period to the next.
