New Zealand Scholarship History masterclass

The context for the 2018 New Zealand Scholarship History examination will be the role of myth in shaping a nation's history.

In this masterclass four historians — Lindsay Diggelmann, Sara Buttsworth, Paul Taillon and Melissa Inouye — come together from different specialist areas to address the role of myth in shaping a nation's history.

You'll hear about myth-making, nationhood and history in:

  • The Magna Carta
  • Gender and warfare
  • The American Revolution
  • World War II in China

Emma Wordsworth, the president of the University of Auckland History Society, also shares her scholarship tips and tricks to help you revise for this year's exam.
