What is/was/will be your college major? posted 20 July 2004 in Off-Topic DiscussionWhat is/was/will be your college major? by Aldarion, Sorcerer-of-Rank

By no means an extensive list, here are some books you might need to read (don't worry, they're mostly intelligble <!-- s;) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- s;) -->):

Carlo Ginzberg, The Cheese and the Worms (mircohistory of a certain heretical Italian peasant and how his beliefs reflect certain cultural uncertainties)

Natalie Zemon Davis, The Return of Martin Guerre - proof that history is indeed stranger than fiction.

Michel Foucault, most anything, but especially The Archaeology of Knowledge; The Order of Things; Discipline and Punish; A History of Madness; and works on counter-memory and language, sexuality, and religion and culture.

These are some cultural history/po-mo critiques that should help you gain a wider understanding of the conflict po-mo causes in the historical field.

And if you're really brave...

Jacques Derrida, On Grammatology, at least for the anti-Preface preface <!-- s;) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- s;) --> view post
