HIST620 - COLLOQ: EUROPEAN HISTORY: EAR MOD HIST & HISTORIOG

Description: 
This seminar will be devoted to a critical examination of a series of notions that are fundamental today in historical writing. Such an approach will allow us to look at the mutations of historical research since the mid-twentieth century, to reflect on the relations between history and other disciplines (anthropology, sociology, literary criticism, history of art, etc.) and to analyze the models of intelligibility that frame historical interpretations. The seminar will read both methodological essays and historical case studies. It will deal with historiographical perspectives developed not only in the English speaking academic world but also in France, Spain, or Italy. Its aim is to propose a series of readings that can be considered as part of the essential "library" necessary for any scholar working today in Humanities and Social Sciences.
