    Writing History I have never been really good at writing. When I was in High School, I struggled the most in writing. The reason I have struggled in writing is because my native language which is Russian has different grammar and ways of writing and it always confuses me. I have gotten better over the few years in writing but still have a lot more work to do. I still believe that writing is my weakest strength point. I have not done much writing other than High School. We used to do a lot of research papers or some papers about a certain topic. I don’t write much for any other reason. I do believe that I need to improve in writing because it’s something that has bothered me for a long time. For my future career I am trying to go for Physical Therapy. This class should put me on the right track to help me improve and become better. When I am assigned to writing papers they take me a long time to do just because I don’t really know how to start writing them or how…

    In her article “Why I’m Still Writing Women’s Literary History”, Professor Devoney Looser astutely asserts that women’s literary history is a field that is alive and thriving and therefore deserves to be treated as such. Her argument centers around addressing concerns expressed by various colleagues of hers, and perhaps a common concern many others hold, that the academic field of women’s studies is now “passe” due to taking a “separatist” approach. The article address the reasons why people may…

    because of history. It helps me understand who I am and allows me to never forget my roots.

Although there are many types of history, my interest in particular is the history of the United States of America. It is fascinating that our nation’s history started by our forefather’s exploration of a new world and ended up creating a new free country.…

    Writings by white, male, upper-class individuals dominate the canon of Western History. While such a dominance does not negate their scholarship, the voices of the marginalized—women, the poor and ethnic minorities—are not represented in this limited historical viewpoint. Many mid-20th century historians felt that there was a need to counter this inequality of representation. For example, E.P. Thompson, Clifford Geertz and Natalie Zemon Davis each generated works that revealed the history of a…

    Assembling of History Puzzles Through Memory Memoirs are magnificent pieces of history that allows us to step into a whole different part of history and enables us to relive history through the portrayal of one’s perspective.

From the time when world history became a disciple until modern day, there is not one uniform consensus on how historians should look at the past. The modern historians Jerry Bentley, Ross Dunn, and Peter Stearns all add to the world history conversation by taking what world history had been and attempting to improve how students and historians view world history. While all three historians take a different piece of the world history…
