What does, and what can, history as an academic discipline claim to do?  This seminar will examine these questions by examining the contemporary practice of historians (historiographical, methodological) and pondering the claims made by historians (epistemological, philosophical).  The scope for these investigations will be limited, in the main, to developments in history and related disciplines in the past 60 years.
