Course Description

What is History? There are many answers to this question and many of those answers depend on individual views and experiences. In this class we will try to understand the challenges faced by the historian and to try and figure out what history actually represents. Who tells the story? How do they tell it? What biases are in play? How do the times a historian writes shape their attitudes? Does the historian make the history or does the history shape the historian? By the end of the seminar you will have a better sense of your own view of history as well as the power and responsibility that comes with telling and understanding history, the story of humanity.
