    About “Keith Jenkins

    • Keith Jenkins

      Keith Jenkins is a British historiographer Like Hayden White and other postmodern historiographers, Jenkins believes that any historian s output should be seen as a story A work of history is as much about the historian s own world view and ideological positions as it is about past events This means that different historians will inevitably ascribe different meaning to the same historical events.Jenkins is professor in history at the University of Chichester.

    • An interesting compliation of essays discussing the pros and cons of postmodernism and historiography. What shines through is the discipline's fear of losing its scientific status. That's quite a shame because art and science are on the same side, history isn't maths and the better you write, the easier you can educate the public. I guess we will have to wait for a certain generation to retire before postmodernist ideas can spread their wings within the historical discipline.
