Rethinking Colonial Histories: New and Alternative Approaches

Rethinking Colonial Histories: New and Alternative Approaches displays a wide variety of approaches to the task of writing colonial history, showcasing the strength of this field of study in the History Department at the University of Melbourne. The chapters in this volume are principally drawn from a successful one-day symposium involving postgraduate students and staff held on 1 October 2004. The symposium specifically featured papers that explored new and alternative approaches to the theory and methodology of historical research and the task of thinking about and writing colonial history. The papers are deliberately reflexive, with authors overtly discussing their particular approach or methodology in rethinking and writing colonial histories.
