Message to students

Hello! My name is Hirokazu Yoshie and I offer courses on history at FILA. In my classes you will be liberated from the widely held view that history is accumulation of facts about the past and that all you need as a student is to parrot what history teachers and textbooks say, as you perhaps did in your history classes in high school and before. Parroting facts is not what history is all about. History as I see it is evidence-based expression and discussion of ways of interpreting the past. In my courses you will be learning and practicing this version of history. The knowledge and skills you gain here can help you be engaged with other FILA courses and life outside and after college.
