Karras, Ray W.
OAH Magazine of History, v7 n2 p9-12 Fall 1992
Contends that many students reject historical study because they see no connection between factual information and their own needs and interests. Suggests that this epistemology of the self can be used to analyze historical information. Recommends helping students see that historical fact is subject to individual and group interpretation.
