Making History: Capstone Unit - MHIX300

This high-level unit will help you to develop the historiographical skills required for advanced historical study, as well as providing the opportunity to reflect on your historical study to date. Students will conduct a large-scale historiographical research project, and will engage with views into the nature, boundaries and purpose of 'history' since the beginning of the nineteenth century. Topics explored include empiricism, universal histories, objectivity and truth, gender, changing understandings of subject matter and evidence, post-colonialism and post-modernism. The unit provides valuable skills for those wishing to pursue higher levels of historical study and an important theoretical foundation for history teachers.
