First World War historiography seminar

 The aim of the seminar is to look at what historians do and why. In the case of university historians, the products we are expected to produce include

 - books (300 to 500 pages). These take a long time so we do not do many.

- articles  or chapters (4000 to 6000 words) Here is an example about humour in First World War song 


 - papers (that is to say, speeches) at university conferences. These generally last twenty minutes, and should be quite concentrated. Hre is an example I gave in Greece
