HIS 787 Introduction to Historical Methods and Research

This course is designed to provide students with an opportunity to practice collecting, interpreting, and presenting data according to acceptable standards of method and style. Through focused discussions of the nature and problems of the discipline of history and specific challenges in Deaf history, students will gain confidence and skill in "doing" and assessing Deaf history. Because this course also examines the interaction between historical techniques and those of related disciplines, students with varied backgrounds and interests will improve their critical thinking and research skills.




Prerequisite: HIS 731 or by permission of the instructor.
