Abstract: This paper explores the learning supported in disciplinary education that incorporates critical social analysis (CSA). CSA is the process of interrogating the values and impact of sociopolitical systems and re-imagining these systems to create new ethical ways of being. Limited work has explored these interdisciplinary contexts, specifically in history education--a discipline that holds resonance with CSA but is frequently taught through an a-political lens. As a result, I conducted an ethnographic study of a high school history class that incorporated CSA, asking if and how did the integration of CSA into this history classroom influence student disciplinary learning? Through on-going qualitative analysis, initial findings indicate that the integration of CSA led to the emergence of critical history practices. I specifically look at two practices, critical historical argumentation and historical imaginative inquiry, to demonstrate how these interdisciplinary practices deepened student historical disciplinary learning and political and ethical meaning-making.
