HIST1006: Writing History
History is a discipline grounded in reading, reflection and writing. Nothing is more critical to your success as a History undergraduate than your ability to write well. This half-unit module is taught by a mixture of lectures and workshops, which will encourage reflection on the writing process and the strategies involved in producing a piece of historical writing. Different strategies suit different topics, different personalities, different groups of readers and different genres or types of writing. Great history essays are not (just) those that display the widest reading or the most work, they are also those that display insight, clarity, even wit. By also providing you with an opportunity to gain valuable feedback from your course tutor and peers, this course will help to develop your skills and confidence as a writer, get you thinking about how best to study and introduce you to some of the resources available to you as a Historian at UCL.
