What does it mean to write history in the centre? What does it mean to write history from below? How does the centre relate to the peripheries? What is the role of historians in the centre-periphery binary? What constitutes the historical ‘otherness’? What are the differences between micro and macrohistory? We encourage you to rethink history in terms of global, national, and local approaches. Theoretically speaking, what do they change?
The Edinburgh University History Society is for students who love history, regardless of their degree, serving as both a social and academic space.
