HISTORY

HIST-100
History, Memory, and the Changeable Past FA2 (3)

Course Level: Undergraduate

This course explores how families, communities, and nations construct memories into a sense of shared history. Drawing upon sources such as novels, memoirs, and visual images, it compares these memory-building processes with the methods of professional historians. The course demonstrates how different perspectives of an event can create radically different historical understandings. Usually offered every spring.
