This unit has been discontinued.
The unit is taught by a mix of video-link and face-to-face seminars.
This unit is a compulsory part of the History Honours program. It inducts students into the historian's craft and the professional practice of history. It aims to impart some basic research skills and introduce students to some issues of theory and method, but above all to introduce them to the variety of approaches and concerns that characterise the discipline. The seminar program will be varied, including practical workshops, general discussions, and presentations on specific topics by local and visiting historians. All seminars will raise issues of method, approach and interpretation.
