History as effects of power

    Research output: Journal PublicationsJournal Article (refereed)Researchpeer-review

    Abstract

    Like any other type of human discourse, history writing should not be viewed as an objective enterprise whose implicit telos is to seek truth; rather, it should be treated as a sphere of conflicting social interests and asymmetrical power-relations. To understand the past, therefore, we not only have to analyze verbal disputes that frequently occur between individual speakers and writers but also need to watch out for the ideological presence that has infiltrated virtually all social institutions.
