    One thought on “What is Cultural History?”

    1. Good textbook on culture history, showing how the discipline has evolved in the last few decades. Has relatively little actual methodology, but it features many key works and thinkers so you can easily learn what to read next.

    2. I think this book is a great introduction for anyone just interested in history, studying history or writing a paper with a focus on cultural history. Burke traces the origins of the, so it seems/seemed, dominant branch of historical research at the time of the release of this book (even though it is still a major aspect in current academic research, I wouldn't call it dominant anymore), back to it's 'founding fathers'.Starting with the heroes Burckhardt, Huizinga, Weber and Elias, working throu [...]

    3. -Sobre una disciplina minoritaria desde lo “aislado” pero que cada vez tiñe más a otras y en varios sentidos.-Género. Ensayo.Lo que nos cuenta. El libro ¿Qué es la historia cultural? (publicación original: What is Cultural History?, 2004) es un acercamiento a la Historia Cultural, su concepto e intenciones, sus inicios, las evoluciones que ha sufrido en su corta carrera como corriente propia, sus vertientes más dominantes y las derivas que está tomando entre autores, investigadores y [...]

    4. This introduction tries to avoid the pitfalls of a) deterministic social approaches to history and b) empty talking about cultural construction and 'cultural theory'. Although these ambitions are admirable, it results in a somewhat vague account of NCH (New Cultural History). Theorists are reduced to flashy flag posts and buzzwords; the most striking example of this (paraphrasing it slightly for polemical and argumentative purposes): 'archeologists admire Foucault, because he was a archeologist, [...]

    5. What is Cultural History? is a curt, phenomenological approach to the title question. Burke examines all the work that purports to be cultural history and categorizes it. He also identifies some influences outside the historical discipline. As a guide to placing secondary sources relative to each other, this is good for quick reference. The bibliography and for further reading sections are useful. I picked up some "to-read" books and made some mental connections. Nevertheless, the book is mostly [...]

    6. Ovo je prvi "uvod" u kuturalnu povijest koji sam pročitala i baš mi je fino lego jer su mi sad te neke kulturno-povijesne stvari posložile. Zapravo, možeš pratit razvoj/evoluciju razmišljanja o temi od Burckhardta na ovamo.Žao mi je da nisam naletila na ovu knjigu dok san polagala sociologiju kulture i žao mi je šta nismo imali samostalni kolegij kulturalne povijesti ni na pov. umjetnosti ni na sociologiji.

    7. It's well written and serves as a reference book. It reads like a very long historiography, but very few (if any) arguments are truly presented. If one has a specific purpose in mind regarding cultural history, this is a good reference book for you. Otherwise, don't expect to be glue do this prose -- it's rather dry at times.

    8. Da una buena introducción a la historia cultural, además fue muy útil para la elección de métodos y enfoques en mi tema de tesis sin embargo creo que deja de lado y repasa muy a fuerzas la gran importancia de la Tercera Generación de Annales.

    9. Dit boek geeft een beknopt overzicht van de evoluties binnen de cultural history. Van Burckhardt en Huizinga, over Bakhtin, Elias, Foucault en Derrida, tot Hobsbawn en Anderson. Interessante concepten als Thick Description, Habitus en Grotesque Realism worden uit de doeken gedaan.

    10. Non chiarisce cosa sia la storia culturale ma si limita, per centosessanta pagine circa, a fare un lungo elenco riassuntoso e poco ragionato di libri e opere che al genere dovrebbero appartenere. Poco utile.

    11. Interessant overzicht van de verschillende stromingen, maar een beetje te weinig afweging naar mijn zin. Eerder beschrijvend. Beetje zoals een handboek
