elcome! We've designed this website http://www.williamcronon.net/researching/ as a basic introduction to historical research for anyone and everyone who is interested in exploring the past.

Whenever you frame a question with reference to how things have changed over time, you commit yourself to doing historical research. All of us do this all the time, but not everyone thinks very carefully about the best ways of finding information about the past and how it relates to the present.

The website ( http://www.williamcronon.net/researching/ ) is divided into two major sections:

  • The first surveys essential stages of the research process.

  • The second surveys different kinds of documents that can offer invaluable information and insights about the past.

Individual pages are designed to be read from beginning to end, and the pages about the research process follow a logical order that mimics the phases of working on a historical project. But individual pages (especially the ones about sources) can also be read in any order.

Although we've constructed this site especially for environmental historians, and have generally provided environmental examples, we've tried to make it as helpful as possible for anyone seeking to learn the craft of doing historical research.

Almost any question you can imagine asking about any topic will become more intriguing if you consider the ways in which the subject you're investigating has changed over time.

  • Interested in how much milk, cheese, and butter Wisconsin dairy farmers produced last year? If so, you might want to know how that compares with ten years ago...or a century ago.

  • Are you curious about the risks posed by new antibiotic-resistant forms of tuberculosis that have been becoming more prevalent in recent years? Then you might want to know how common the disease was before antibiotics became widely available.

  • Would you like to know the possible impacts on modern economies of changing oil prices? Then you might want to study how such economies responded to past changes in energy prices—and how people used to work and move around before gasoline and other petroleum products were such a big part of their lives.

The list of questions like these is literally infinite.

Historical research can be an amazing adventure once you've experienced how fascinating it can be.

We hope this website http://www.williamcronon.net/researching/  will encourage you to give it a try!


Mastering the Stages of the Research Process

There are certain predictable stages that all historical research questions go through:

As you can see, these form a logical sequence, but it's important to stress that these "stages" are in fact deeply entangled with each other, so that doing this kind of research is always an iterative process. You won't be able to ask good questions if you can't learn to think of them relative to documents—and each new document you find is likely to generate new questions that you never could have anticipated at the beginning of your research. That's half the fun.

Still, it sometimes helps to think about these stages as if they were discrete from each other, so we've designed a page for each of them.
