- Local and Community History
|Coordinator(s)||Lorina Barker (firstname.lastname@example.org)|
This unit provides an immersion in the concepts, methods, sources and delights of local and community history. Students will evaluate several varieties of local and community history in Australia and elsewhere, and consider the strengths and weaknesses of different approaches including different forms (in print, on line, in displays, through walks). Students will also critically evaluate a range of different sources, and will be required to advance their knowledge about the relationship of local and community history to the broader history world and to the social, cultural and political contexts in which it is produced. They will have the opportunity to apply the knowledge and skills to research a locality and community of their choice.
