What seal bones and clamshells teach us about past climate.

The images of Native Americans made by outsiders often tell us as much about the people making them as they do their subjects. Even photographs, which presume to capture reality, disclose by choice of subject and its portrayal a photographer's preconceptions which must inevitably influence our perception. Photographs, like the drawings and paintings of native people made by westerners since the first encounter, may more usefully be considered art, and all representations must be examined closely to separate what may be considered real from a pervasive bias.

The History major is for students who understand that shaping the future requires knowing the past. History courses explore many centuries of human experimentation and ingenuity, from the global to the individual scale. History majors learn to be effective storytellers and analysts, and to craft arguments that speak to broad audiences. They make extensive use of Yale’s vast library resources to create pioneering original research projects. Students of history learn to think about politics and government, sexuality, the economy, cultural and intellectual life, war and society, and other themes in broadly humanistic—rather than narrowly technocratic—ways.
