Making History is an online unit provided by Macquarie University and Open Universities Australia which aims to consolidate all you have learned throughout your undergraduate degree.
The unit consists of a large-scale historiographical research project which must engage and reflect on the nature, boundaries and purpose of history since the 19th century. Potential topics include empiricism, universal histories, truth, objectivity, gender, post-colonialism and post-modernism.
