Vimala College (Autonomous), Thrissur

Department of History

Department Overview

               History is an indispensable ingredient of liberal arts education. Knowledge of history is essential to understanding who we are and where we fit in the world. In fact, as a key to understanding human nature, the study of history distinguishes itself from other disciplines by the vastness of its subject matter. It serves to identify one’s self and his/her location in a social space while working as an antidote to religious and cultural fundamentalism.

             Hence, history as a discipline is engaging and dynamic. Far from being the study of facts and dates, the study of history involves reading, understanding and interpreting the past to enable one to comprehend and understand the present and the future.
