HIS 301 Craft and Theory of World History
This is an upper-level course in world history. Students will read secondary literature about world history and will read world history textbooks more for historiographical analysis than for content. Emphasis will therefore be on the theories and practices of world history; students will be expected to produce a significant term paper focusing either on a curricular proposal for a world history course or on an historiographical analysis of current trends and developments in the field. Spring semester when offered.
Prerequisite: Previous course work in world history.
