21H.991J Theories and Methods in the Study of History (MIT)
The purpose of this course is to acquaint you with a variety of approaches to the past used by historians writing in the twentieth century. Most of the books on the list constitute, in my view (and others), modern classics, or potential classics, in social and economic history. We will examine how these historians conceive of their object of study, how they use primary sources as a basis for their accounts, how they structure the narrative and analytic discussion of their topic, and what are the

7 Unofficial work cultures
In this unit, we are going to look at a number of situations which put a strain on the idea that caring is just 'being ordinary', including times when people are giving intimate care. In these special circumstances, since the normal rules do not apply, we have to develop a set of special rules to guide practice.

Quantitative models for early prediction of software development success: a practitioner’s perspec
This study investigated some of the early non-technical components of the software development process from the perspective of project success. The causal relationships among these components, as well as their relationship to software practitionersâ overall perception of project success, were depicted through a Bayesian Belief Network. Components related to sponsor/management, customer/users and requirements management. Data was gathered through a survey of practitioners. This research is imp
National Security and Intellectual Freedom

In this class, however, we will focus on the two and a half centuries between 1600 and 1850, a period when insights first developed in the natural sciences and mathematics were seized upon by social theorists, institutional reformers and political revolutionaries who sought to change themselves and the society in which they lived.
