Introduction to History: History of the Present

HIST 189
Fall 2020 not offered
Crosslisting: COL 189
Course Cluster and Certificates: Social, Cultural, and Critical Theory Certificate

In this course we explore history as a critical endeavor. The aim is twofold: to reflect on the role history plays in making categories of contemporary debate appear inevitable, natural, or culturally necessary; to question underlying assumptions about the relationship between past and present that are so often taken for granted. We will examine both history's influence on politics and the politics of history as a discipline.
