The Historiography Series Lectures
|Latest Lecture||25th June, 2022|
|Duration||8th March, 2022 - Present|
|Aim||Formulating Historiography Policy Document for Historical India Wiki|
The Historiography Series is an ongoing lecture series at Historical India that attempts in this direction, to equip students with the necessary skills to read, interpret and eventually write history. With a multitude of narratives getting traction, and political motives getting injected into these, the discipline of history is unfortunately becoming the biggest casualty. We believe that it is essential to get an idea of how history is to be written and understood, so that a foundation can be established for future discourse and debate. The objective of this series is the formulation of a Historiography policy document that shall be made part of the website’s content policy.
