Reconstructing Lives

This seminar is designed for students whose research interests encompass the piecing together of lives in the past, whether obscure or well-known; singular or plural; local, regional, national, or transnational. We will explore and discuss the crafting of historical inquiries, the search for evidence, the art of interpretation and analysis, and the place of thesis and argument. We will also concern ourselves with the process of writing, including questions of voice, style, narrative, and imagination.
