are we the same person? (though i did political and admin leadership/changes in systems of gov/gender in q2)Both were fine. Wrote three booklets for each.
Question 1 was deeeep and interesting too. My take on it was that practices in the past tended to reject either imagination (Von Ranke) or discipline (Hayden White) but ultimately, it is the amalgamation of both that allows history to resonate with our sense of humanity as the imagination (Used Phillip Cummins author of Clio's scroll, but then realized he marks the exam when I walked out....fuck) reveals the humanity of the historians and sources while discipline appeals to our need for validation and integrity, and the mix of two gains the 'potency' that the source was talking about.
Question 2: Pretty generic, it suited well for Elizabeth's I construction of identity and gender well enough. I did it first hoping it would buy me some time on question 1 but still took an hour to do it :/
i interpreted imagination in 2 ways, the obvious + it also lends itself to diverging from the strict bounds of traditional academia and scholarship/going into streams of media, exhibitions and alternative mediumsIt perhaps has a role with the audience, but not in the composition of the history itself, surely.
Karl Marx: "Freeman and slave, patrician and plebian, lord and serf etc.... I imagine that they wore red clothes and were really angry. I also imagine that this will happen again and again, as I imagine that class struggle is the locomotive for change (in which I imagine)."
