History of History - Science topic
History of History are this group is a platform for researchers who use a metahistorical approach in their work. Such work is not focused on the content of (his)stories but on sense making in sources that describe the past and insofar analyse patterns of in/exclusion, metaphors as well as the emplotment of events, actors and places.

At the continental level, what did the spatial footprint of African trade routes look like before colonialisation?
The anti-establishment ethos of New Historicism wasprofoundly influenced by Foucault's theories of Power/Knowledge and Discourse. what does new historicism owe to foucault?
Can the second-language version, strictly speaking, be considered a translation of the first-language version or is it merely a somewhat looser interpretation? How do such authors approach the task? How are the two versions produced (e.g. conjointly or serially?) and how closely are they related?
What are the reasons why non-Anglophone academics are under-represented in critical reviews in academic articles?
What can be specifically done to give voice to under-repesented academics?
Is it time to re-examine the labelling of Africa's regions as North Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa? Should there not be a more modern term for the larger subdivision of Africa. One that communicates its larger land mass, population , historical, anthropological, genealogical and economical significance. While not sure of the origin, but sometimes these terms originate with cartographers or journalists and then persist in the language? We seem not to have persisted with labels such as Asia Minor and Asia Major (see map). On the other hand, in the Caribbean there is an historical division of the Antiles as Greater Antiles and Lesser Antiles. Is the label Sub-Saharan Africa still apprpriate? If not, what would you recommend the larger Africa be referenced as ? Greater Afica ? Africa Major ? Some other reference ?
Please share your own experience. For me, all the articles were accepted after a revision if the journal was with an impact factor and non paid.
Physically, is it possible the form of those human corpses could be preserved for 18 centuries (it was discovered in 1863) below 15m of ashes and volcanic rocks? What would have forbade stones and ashes to fill this cavity? The human "soul" maybe? Gently preserving the exact form of the body with its so human expressive gesture? How could Guiseppe Fiorelli, the numismatist, could spot those "cavities" under 15m of ashes? See that scholar drawing explaining its "marvellous" discovery.
Is that person to be found amongst the present billionaires ? Or are these figures to be found from our long gone past ?
I am an independent researcher, and seeking human and economic resources for anthropometric research of built heritage, according to my thesis and using the products developed.
Since the thesis shows a new paradigm and gets generalizable results, it should be a transversal area of concern (architecture, art history, history of science, archeology, historiography, anthropology, ...)
Recently I have been researching on how to understand the historical content of the cultural practices of sociability in the second mital of the nineteenth century. I've noticed that the concept of sociality exists before being typified by contemporary sociology as an object of study. I hope you have some points of view dissimilar to enrich the debate
I'm studing the circulation of a history book published in Spain in the 1880 decade. There were three editions, but I would like how extensive was each one. I'm not a specialist in history of the book, so any suggestion about resources, methods or tricks will be very welcome. Thanks in advance!
For me the two more important are:
1. The phase transition liquid-solid for the water is that the solid state is less dense.
2. The dielectric screening in metals is such that the Coulomb interaction among the electrons falls at a distance of the Bohr radius.
The first one has many important applications as the one of allowing the live in rivers during winter or so on. On the other hand, there are also very interesting electric and thermodynamic phase transitions for this material
The second, thanks to have a so local electric interaction it allows to have almost free electrons at quite high electronic density in matter and therefore to apply theories so useful as the bands in solids. Over all in metals
I am researching the concept of hero and would love peoples thoughts
In Germany, since the 1970s there has been a great focus on cultural memory in terms of the Nazi era and then the Cold War era (in both East and West Germanies). In the USA there was reflection on WWII and Vietnam memories in the 1980s and 1990s. What is of greatest interest in your land of research or homeland?
