Book Description

18 Nov 2011
Everyone has a personal connection to the past, independent of historical inquiry. So, what is the role of the historian? Making History argues that historians have damagingly dissociated the discipline of history from the everyday nature of history, defining their work only in scholarly terms. Exploring the relationship between history and society, Kalela makes the case for a more participatory historical research culture, in which historians take account of their role in society and the ways in which history-making as a basic social practice is present in their work.

Making History not only asks provocative questions about the role of the historian, it also provides practical guidance for students and historians on planning research projects with greater public impact. This book is vital reading for all historians, lay and professional, and will be an essential text for undergraduate and postgraduate courses on historiography and research methods.

Product Description

Review

'A timely, accessible and convincingly argued case for more attention to be given to the preparation stage of historical writing, along with a thoughtful and at times provocative discussion of the role of historians and history in the 21st Century. I found the book to be stimulating, thought provoking and personally useful for my own research planning.' - Toby Butler, University of East London, UK
 
'Drawing on a wealth of intellectual expertise and practical experience, Professor Jorma Kalela has produced a stimulating book for thinking historians. He challenges us to scrutinise professional practice and to engage in profound and possibly unsettling ways with what it means to be an historian today.' - Hilda Kean, Director of Public History and Dean, Ruskin College, UK
