The course Theory of history discusses the conditionality of historical research and opens up the theoretical background of individual historiographical issues, problematises the epistemological issues regarding the writing of history and the historian's research of the past of Southeast Europe. The students try out in depth the independent reflection on individual historiographical methods (regressive method, indicative method, oral history, the use of photography as a historiographical source), the writing of national and ethnocentrical history. They independently problematise individual thematic groups (the public use of history, the relation between memory and history, the relation between the individual and collective memory, the relation between history and memory).
