History

The History Honours syllabus consists of eight papers to be covered in three academic years. The Honours curriculum can be devided in two parts – Indian history and History of the World. Papers on History of India cover period from Pre–history to Nehruvian era (1964). The span of the syllabus of the Eurocentric World history is from the fall of Feudal Society (Rise of early Modern Europe) to the end of Cold War. It also includes the history of Far East countries. The earlier methodology of ‘Grand Narration’ is no longer prevalent in contemporary history syllabus of the University of Calcutta. Apart from the study of political and diplomatic history, the curriculum encourages to trace the changes in productive forces bringing socio–economic and cultural evolution / revolution in a particulars time period. The main objective of the new syllabus is to free the subject from its monotonous empirical narration and construct it as a social science.
