Doing Cultural History

Insights, Innovations, Impulses

"Doing Cultural History" collects papers on a variety of topics. The issues addressed span from the 12th to the 21st century and include the communication of peace in written and pictorial sources, narrative structures in legal texts, masculinity and violence, and new research into Scottish medieval history as well as a comparison of religious theme parks and the perception of sorcery and false saintliness in early modern Spain.

1. Why did You choose this topic?

The idea of releasing a volume in the FSP's book series that brings together some of the FSP-funded papers at international conferences came up on the occasion of Research Unit's tenth anniversary. We had a reason to look back and therefore the wish emerged to gather, record, and present some of the already done work to a broader audience.

2. What new perspectives does your book offer?

Every researcher is familiar with the issue: Interesting findings besides the big project for the next monography or innovative considerations in or new perspectives on the own field of research are often the basis for a paper and the following discussion – but without conference transcript, these results, however fascinating they might be, will vanish. This time, they won't!

3. What makes your topic relevant for current research debates?

The term ›Cultural History‹ still seems to be a bit nebulous. In this book, the reader can find representative examples, what persons, who call themselves Cultural Historians, investigate, how they work, what their findings are. It won't answer the question ›What is Cultural History?‹ but rather ›How is Cultural History done?‹

4. Choose one person you would like to discuss your book with!

Every person who says: ›Oh my goodness, what are you actually doing at all those conferences?‹

5. Your book summary in one sentence:

Researchers are ›Doing Cultural History‹ – and they do it with many variations.

»Das Close Reading der Quellen in vielen Beiträgen eröffnet [...] die Nachvollziehbarkeit des Arbeits- und Argumentationsganges. So bietet der Band erste Zugänge zu unterschiedlichen Gegenstandsbereichen und zu diversen Quellengruppen sowie gelungene Fallstudien.«
