Making History

by La Trobe University

This course material is only available in the iTunes U app on iPhone or iPad.

Course Description

‘Making History’ aims to give students an understanding of the role and importance of historiography (the particular ‘spin’ or interpretation in history) and an awareness of significant historiographical changes in the discipline of history as a whole.

Emphasis will be placed on the way in which changes in thinking about the present have affected the shaping of the past and the debates surrounding each point of historiographical change. The first series of lectures will cover national, transnational, global and postcolonial historiographical shifts. These categories co-ordinate closely with concerns over the ‘hegemony of Western thought’ but also reflect changing national concerns within specific countries in the East and West. The second will explore more conceptual areas of historical thought: social/cultural, environmental, women and the body. These often critique the meta-narratives of ‘history as progress’ and ‘history from above.’
