This course will introduce students to a range and variety of modern sources which historians use to write the history of post 1800 society, politics and culture. Methods and procedures for doing (for example) oral history, the history of other cultures, and the history of everyday life, will be explored by using specific sources. As with HS1007 students will also examine these historical records through using a variety of practical historical skills. The course will aim to give students experience in writing exercises discussing the interpretation of primary materials and develop students' skills of critical and interpretative analysis.
