This exciting third level history unit is the capstone to the history major and is only available to those who have already completed three history units. It has been devised to enhance your skills in historical interpretation and analysis and is taught by staff deeply involved in the production of history. The unit is team taught and is comprised of two modules. The first explores the archive as a repository of specific documents that shape and determine the historical narrative. Students will explore government archives, private archives and church archives through new theoretical approaches. The second module will be taught by historian practitioners who will introduce you to historical sources relevant to their current research. This module will change from year to year but may include Indigenous and Australian history, Pacific, European or French history. Students may tackle themes of colonisation, decolonisation, politics, war and memory.
