Doing History: Analyzing Primary Sources with Shahrazad Shareef
Historians study documents and objects left from the past. They call these items primary sources. In this workshop, we will learn and practice some essential tools for engaging primary sources. Our goal in these exercises will be not to interpret the documents at hand, but rather to craft historical questions about the sources and topics of our investigation.
Undergraduates and graduate students are welcome. Bring a source with you! Pizza and beverages will be provided.
