This paper looks at postmodernism in the study of history.The writer particularly balances arguments by Keith Jenkins and Richard J Evans while providing an examination of the effects and consequences of postmodernist thought on the study of history and historiography.
From the Paper:"Postmodern historians have essentially come to view history as a study of images, thoughts, language and feelings about society and the past. In short that history is simply discourse and no particular discourse is in essence truer than another. According to postmodern ideas, what actually happened is no longer the historian's primary concern, in fact what happened can never really be known. Instead, what is important is what people thought happened."
