OVERVIEW

The teaching aims to present an overview of the fundamental concepts concerning the historical discipline and to provide students with the basic tools to know methods and sources of historical work, with a particular attention to the centuries of the modern age.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The lessons aim to give students the methodological and theoretical tools to acquire and develop skills on how to reconstruct and narrate past events as well as a basic knowledge on the orientations and transformations of the scientific debate on these issues over time. In this context, they specifically aim to provide stimuli to promote reflections, informed by a critical awareness, on the meaning of history, its legitimacy and its yearning for objectivity. In particular, the lessons aim to enable students to master the use of sources, methods of investigation, analytical categories and interpretative perspectives of history.

 

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

Teaching has two main objectives. On the one hand, it aims to offer students some basic indications regarding the most relevant methodological and theoretical tools for the knowledge of history, with particular regard to the acquisition of skills on analytical categories as well as on a series of sources that characterize the discipline, their availability, use and interpretation. They will also have acquired skills on the availability, use and interpretation of the sources and will be able to discuss the most significant interpretative paradigms, with particular attention to the centuries of the modern age. Finally, they will be able to draw on a wide range of factual information to identify turning points and possible subsequent periods, aimed at a better understanding of major historical developments.

A basic knowledge of the events and issues of world history from antiquity to the present day.
