HIST 682 Advanced Studies in World History

This course will examine best practices as they apply to the teaching and research of world history. In the course, students will focus on one major topic in world history (e.g., slavery in world history, gender relations in world history, warfare in world history, environmental issues in world history). Students will then see how professional historians go about studying, researching and teaching this topic through use of primary sources including oral history, archival research, literature reviews, historiographical surveys, etc. This is a repeatable course.
