Field Seminar - HSTY4102

Year - 2020

Students undertaking the Honours program in History enrol in one Field Seminar and one Approach Seminar, which run concurrently from Week 1 to Week 13 of Semester 1. In the Field Seminar, students examine current or emerging debates and research foci in a specific field of history. Each field is defined by place, time and geography, but is construed broadly so as to expose students to complex questions of change and continuity. Students choose their preferred field from a range of offerings (examples include: modern European history, American history; Australian history; Medieval Europe).
