Welcome to the Historiography & Research Methods research guide. This guide will point you to the best resources available to you as a student at Southern Wesleyan University.
Historiography is the study of how historians interpreted historical events. It is through this study of secondary sources that contemporary historians identify changes and trends in the profession. Mastering historiography is a foundational activity of an education in history.
This guide provides suggestions in both how to find scholarly historiographies and methods to gather sources to write a historiography. The information provided here are just starting points and far from comprehensive. Please contact the library if you need additional assistance.
