HIST 251, Research Methods (Dziedziak): Historiography or history?

What is historiography?

An article that focuses on how previous scholars have studied an event or topic is a historiography. 

These articles may compare scholarship over time, categorize different methods of study, or contrast different critical lenses.

They typically are not focused on analyzing historical primary sources.
