Course aim

To develop students' advanced theoretical knowledge and emphasis on the complex and dynamic relationships between societies, histories and ideas.

Course content

Students will develop a theoretical basis to trace and locate contemporary ideas within larger histories of experience, knowledges and contestations over meaning and 'truth'. The students will develop an epistemological framework to contextualise the intersections of time, identities and narratives, and will review exemplar case studies of ideas that are foundational to histories of the present.
