Course Description

This is a mandatory course designed for the first year research postgraduate students of the History Department. The goal is to prepare the students with a wide-range knowledge of modern historiography.  Through a series of lectures by invited professors (including potential supervisors of new students), the students could have the chance to learn and appreciate various approaches to the study of history.  

At the lectures, the invited professors will share with students their research experience and present their research projects or findings in class focusing on research methodologies, approaches, and issues related to historiography, i.e., the writing of history based on the critical use of sources, the selection of particulars from the sources and the synthesis of particulars that will demonstrate the author’s historian’s crafts, other techniques of inquiry and investigation, or writing skills. If available, a list of readings, which may or may not be the speaker’s own works, can be provided by the professor to support the lecture.

The lecture may last about 60 minutes. The enrolled students are required to attend all classes. After the lecture, students may ask questions or present their comments on the lecture as well as the readings. Each student should give oral feedback on at least 5 lectures. By the end of the term, each student should turn in three critical reports on three selected topics among the lectures (average 5 pages each in Chinese or English). In addition, they are to submit revised thesis project proposals which are polished from the ones submitted when they applied for admission to the postgraduate programme. It is expected that the revisions are improved works inspirited by this course.

Honesty in Academic Work

Attention is drawn to University policy and regulations on honesty in academic work, and to the disciplinary guidelines and procedures applicable to breaches of such policy and regulations. Details may be found at http://www.cuhk.edu.hk/policy/academichonesty/.

With each assignment, students will be required to submit a signed declaration that they are aware of these policies, regulations, guidelines and procedures.

  • In the case of group projects, all members of the group should be asked to sign the declaration, each of whom is responsible and liable to disciplinary actions, irrespective of whether he/she has signed the declaration and whether he/she has contributed, directly or indirectly, to the problematic contents.
  • For assignments in the form of a computer-generated document that is principally text-based and submitted via VeriGuide, the statement, in the form of a receipt, will be issued by the system upon students’ uploading of the soft copy of the assignment.

Assignments without the properly signed declaration will not be graded by teachers.

Only the final version of the assignment should be submitted via VeriGuide.

The submission of a piece of work, or a part of a piece of work, for more than one purpose (e.g. to satisfy the requirements in two different courses) without declaration to this effect shall be regarded as having committed undeclared multiple submissions. It is common and acceptable to reuse a turn of phrase or a sentence or two from one’s own work; but wholesale reuse is problematic. In any case, agreement from the course teacher(s) concerned should be obtained prior to the submission of the piece of work.
