“This topic was great overall. What let it down was the mismatch of lecture content to the readings, and the consistencie of historical themes through the content. Class discussion was very minimal, but if you like sitting in near silence for an hour then this is the subject for you!
The redeeming element to this subject was the assessment. The first task is an Archive assignment, where you find your own source from an archive and analyse it. This is really what History is about, and you feel like a real detective trawling through documents looking for any leads to a big thing in history. It is a shame that they leave this sort of task to second year though…”

“Considering that I’m not Australian, the way the subject was taught meant that I didn’t feel left behind without a basic knowledge of Australian History. The system where each student has to present to their tutorial group definitely worked really well.

All in all, I really enjoyed this subject and it was really well taught.”
