This course will introduce History majors who qualify for the Honors
Program to a variety of approaches to the professional study of
history, using the scholarship and experiences of History Department
faculty members as examples.  In each of three sections-Methodological
Approaches, Thematic Approaches, and Regional Issues-three professors
will discuss with students a product of their own research in relation
to wider developments in the field.  Students will write a paper on
each of the three sections, as well as a final paper related to the
introductory reading in the course, David Lowenthal's The Past Is A
Foreign Country.  This is an Intensive Writing course, in which papers
will be evaluated partly in accord with the standards of Strunk &
White's Elements of Style.
