HIST 632 Research in Popular and Applied History II : Topics in the History of Medieval Europe and Anatolia
The second of a series of comparative and applied workshops in the analysis of elements of popular historical consciousness, including fiction, popular journal and comic strips as well as history education materials. Focuses not only on Turkey but Southeast Europe as a whole, and creates space for exploring the possibilities of defining and producing alternative educational materials, including textbooks and/or theme kits for teacher and students. More specifically, and as the continuation of HIST 631 over the second semester, HIST 632 is devoted to critical investigations of existing accounts of Medieval Europe and Anatolia in history education, as well as the possibilities of improving on such treatments. Does not count as a 600 -coded research seminar for graduate students registered in regular Sabancı University degree programs.
