Ob auf archäologischen Themenwanderungen, Mittelalter-Spektakeln, auf Festumzügen und im Karneval, in diversen TV-Formaten und in rekonstruierten Settings, die historische Bedingungen herstellen und erfahrbar machen sollen – überall hier werden emotionale Verbindungen zwischen Vergangenheit und Gegenwart geschaffen und letztlich ‚Geschichte gemacht‘. Gemeinsam ist diesen körperlichen Praktiken, dass es sich um Vergegenwärtigungen handelt, die nicht in der Vermittlung von Geschichte aufgehen und auch als ‚Living History‘ nur noch bedingt zu fassen sind. 0Diese körperlichen Geschichtspraktiken haben zwar eine lange Tradition, aber seit den 1980er Jahren nahm ihre Bedeutung stark zu. Erforscht sind sie noch kaum. Dieser Sammelband nimmt sich dieses Desiderates an. Er ist fach- und epochenübergreifend angelegt und verfolgt einen Praxisfokus. Das Konzept des ‚doing history‘ bildet dabei den begrifflichen Rahmen für die Beiträge. Im Sinne von Performanzforschungen steht die Herstellung von Bedeutung im Vollzug von Handlungen im Vordergrund, bei der alle Anwesenden, aber auch Dinge und Atmosphären, mitwirken.

Like its best-selling predecessor, the second edition of this book combines theory with 'hands on' practice, providing engaging exercises that make history more accessible to majors and non-majors alike, helping students learn to think historically while at the same time strengthening their critical-thinking and communication skills. This dynamic workbook has been thoughtfully redesigned from a discussion of the nature of history to confronting historical accounts to actually 'doing' history. A final section discusses historiography and history's relationship to other academic disciplines. With more systematic attention to writing skills throughout, this new edition also offers a series of 'Writing Capsules' focused on techniques of organisation and forming coherent paragraphs.
