Prominent Historical Associations


These 2 links are optional. They are to prominent associations of individuals in the profession of history. You can see for yourself examples of how the profession of history works and what the profession demands as evidence.  They are both interesting websites.


You can also see the practical meaning of the word historiography, a term that reveals part of the requirements of this course. Historiography is “the writing of history based on critical analysis, evaluation, and selection of authentic source materials and composition of these materials into a narrative subject to scholarly methods of criticism” (from the American Heritage Dictionary). In your own work, you are expected to give sources for what you state and to practice critical thinking..
