(Re)Writing History. Historiography in Southeast Europe after Socialism

Edited by: Ulf Brunnbauer

The authors of this volume analyse the development of historiography in Southeast Europe after the collapse of socialism. On the one hand, they discuss efforts at reevaluating the past. On the other hand, their contributions reveal that recent historiography has often been characterised by a high degree of continuity despite social and political transformation. Neither the methodology nor the topics of mainstream historiography have changed. Nevertheless, new approaches have developed that do not view the past from a narrow political and national perspective. They connect to international discourse and break out of the parochialism of much of traditional historical writing in Southeast Europe.
