HIS 3853: Historiography: The Anglo-American Tradition
Prerequisite: 15 hours of history or instructor's permission. This course explores the roots, development, patterns and problems of history writing in the English and American tradition. It pays special attention to the way that history writing takes place in the contexts of time, place and systems of belief. Using excerpts from influential historical works as our primary materials, we study how English-language history writing has been influenced by ideas of critical analysis, skepticism, science, progress, objectivity, relativism and relevance. Along the way we learn about techniques of historical reconstruction, debates within the discipline, and how Christian ideas and beliefs may or may not impact historical writing and thinking. This course fulfills the historiography requirement for the history major.
