Subjecting our Understanding of Truth to History

James Warren


The understanding of truth as a concept is a core requirement for academics, in particular those of us who study history. This presentation will be exploring how we as students have learned to engage with primary sources and the trials and tribulations which follows, as we begin to understand and unravel the methodologies which are associated with uncovering such truth in our academic work. This includes delving into the intricacies which we as students face when constructing our arguments as we attempt to relate our subjective truth to the contextual truth of the period which we choose to study.
