Section Information for Fall 2024

This course examines trends in historical analysis and focuses primarily on the work of

twentieth- and twenty-first-century scholars working in the United States. Although most of the texts we read deal with early modern Europe, Africa, and the Americas, this class is focused on historiography rather than on a specific region or time period. We will discuss the way that historians and other scholars choose and interpret their sources, the way that historical context and other factors affect their interpretations, how and why these interpretations have developed and changed over time, and how the media that historians use affects analysis and impact.
