This course focuses on the historical craft, its methods, practices, and theories. We will read a selection of theoretical writings that have been influential in recent historiography. More crucially, we will read a diverse array of historical monographs from different times and world regions. In our meetings, we intend to discuss how historians shape their narratives, which methodological and theoretical tools they employ, and how we can engage historical writings intellectually.
