HIS3MHI

2020

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

How is the past made into history? In this subject, you will use digital media to communicate the past. You will make history, researching a topic, event, place or artefact of your choice. Your challenge is to communicate this history via a media form (video, podcast, online essay or museum display) in an engaging way to the public. You will gain practical experience in media communication, independent research, critical thinking and ethics. As you engage with historical debates and media, you will challenge traditional ideas and practices and develop skills in understanding how the past becomes history and in communication. You will go from being the student studying other histories, to being the historian making your own history and communicating it to a public audience. You will gain experience in historical writing, producing a video or recording a podcast. Making History is suitable as an elective in media and communication, gender studies, politics, education and English.
