In this exciting third level unit history students undertake reflective historical practice as they engage with the process of research and writing history. The unit offers two modules. The first module explores new theoretical approaches to archives and history writing, in which students will consider the nature of archives and the process of constructing a historical narrative from archival sources. The content of the second module may change from year to year, and will involve students working closely with staff on new research, which may include Indigenous and Australian history, Pacific, European and French history, tackling themes of colonisation, decolonisation, politics, war and memory.
