International Reflection on the
Discipline is a crucial examination of international comparative,
critical perspectives on history, historians, and their audiences. In
this text, historians from around the world explore new rends,
movements, and conceptualizations in history as a discipline and a
profession. This guide provides innovative approaches to historians as
they redefine their discipline in relation to the global society of
the new millennium.
"Linguistic Turn," Postmodernism, and Deconstruction
gender studies and social history
objectivity and subjectivity in historical interpretation
multiple views of history from differing times and places
history as criticism, literature, and reconstruction
The book explores new ways for moving
the discipline beyond sources and source criticism to a different
concept of the historical profession as a science with a human subject
that discovers the past as people construct it. Included in this book
is the English translation of the HaD Manifestoa proposal designed to
unify historians of the twenty first century and ensure a new dawn for
history, its writings, and its teachings. With this resource,
historians, social scientists, humanists, and librarians will learn
how to se cross-border development and new global
historiographic networks to bring hope for a future in history.
