This subject deals with the origins, current state, and future of history as one of the oldest academic and popular disciplines. Students will study the 'history of history', examining the foundations of history in the ancient world; the development of medieval and early-modern conceptions of history; and history in its many modern forms. The subject also considers non-Western conceptions of history, and explores some of the key questions and debates over the nature of history itself. These include questions over history as an empirical discipline or social science; history as a narrative of progress; history as fiction; history as national epic; history as class struggle; history as the lives of great men; and the 'end' of history.
