HIST 604 The Application of Social Sciences in History *3 (0-3s-0)

Description:  Whether implicitly or explicitly, historians have long drawn on the concepts and methods of neighbouring disciplines in the social sciences such as sociology, anthropology, geography, economics, social psychology, or linguistics in their interpretations of the past.  In this course, we will explore both important social and cultural theories that have influenced the writing of history and examples of historians' use of these theories in practice.

HIST 660 TOPICS IN CANADIAN HISTORY *3 (0-3s-0)

Prerequisite: *3 in HIST at the 300-level or consent of Department.

A1- Title: Public History in Canada

Description:  Public history addresses how history is made and understood through processes that involve academic historians, other professionals, and broader publics. The activities of museums and archives, scholarly analyses of social memory, narratives embedded in websites and videogames, and various sorts of public commemorations: all can represent examples of public history. The work of presenting and interpreting the past is highly contested due to intersections with contemporary patterns of power and privilege. In this class, we will consider public history in a Canadian context. Students will engage with scholarly readings, hear from experts in the field, participate in field trips, and tackle assignments rooted in real-world public history challenges.
