Hobart, Launceston, Cradle Coast
This unit is compulsory because it is a core part of the History Honours program. It inducts students into the theory and method of history and into historians' professional practice. Each week students are introduced to different historical approaches, concerns and controversies that characterise the discipline. The seminar program is varied, including practical workshops, general discussions, and presentations on specific issues by local and visiting historians. All seminars raise issues of method, approach and interpretation.
