HIST1405 History, Heritage and Human Communities (3 units)
- Medium of Instruction:
This is a course that introduces about the nature of history and how historians make sense of major issues in their worlds professionally and personally. Through the guided reading of selected historical texts, students will develop an understanding of the complexity of how history operates within frameworks under different factors—economic, cultural, religious, political—and how these factors have interacted with individual aspirations and with the deliberate efforts of individuals to control and shape events in specific contexts and historical moments.
This course will introduce the major conceptual tools so that students may understand different approaches and explanatory paradigms in historical scholarship. Selected texts will be used to demonstrate and examine and how history and collective identity would be associated with creating the stories, including the origin, customs and achievements of a people. While recognizing the social and cultural values of historical writing, this course will address the subtlety of how different worldviews and political consequences that different versions of history produce.
