Topic:  Pathways to History

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—
professors will discuss with students some products 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 O’Connor’s "Woe Is I" and Storey’s "Writing
History".
