Brief description

This course seeks to encourage students to consider how an historical text is constructed, and the relationship between the historian's techniques and organisation of a text and the meaning or meanings s/he seeks to convey by looking at celebrated psychohistory of Nazi Freikorps on E Front (or whatever).
In relation to a single historical work, the module will also examine the interaction of the study of history with that of literature and psychanalysis.
