HIS 301 - Making History

Dietz and Guasco

This course explores how history is produced, memorialized, and remembered in the present day (and all the complications and debates that result). It will do so locally, investigating history and memory in the South in general, and Charlotte in particular. It will do so internationally, investigating history and memory in Great Britain in general, and London in particular. And it will do so independently, as students pursue an in-depth study of how history manifests itself in an arena of personal interest. 

Course materials will include historical scholarship, films, literature, and site visits. Course members will spend spring break in London visiting and reporting on spaces and institutions of historical importance. The History Department will finance all course-related travel.

Satisfies a History major and minor requirement.
Satisfies the Historical Thought Ways of Knowing requirement.

Prerequisites & Notes
