Intro to Historical Research || Rebecca Glass

Rebecca Glass || NYHFA

Lecture

This lecture is geared towards those who are new(er) to the HEMA and historical research communities, and those who've wanted to get involved in the research aspect of HEMA but have absolutely no idea where to start. We'll discuss the basics - topic selection, how to identify sources, primary vs secondary sources (and the pros and cons of both), how to discern biases in sources, issues with languages and translation, and how one might draw - and present - conclusions from your sources.
