Also, in 2015, there was a film about Stonewall that received a lot of criticism due to its presentation of the event. This edition raises many interesting questions about history, how it is written and how it is remembered. It also raises interesting questions about the historical accuracy of films and the responsibility of artists to be historically correct. Still others have looked at these trends and tried, with different enthusiasms, to integrate new perspectives into their work. A positive summary of some of these trends can be found in Keith Jenkins` Rethinking History. This form of disagreement goes to the heart of what history is and what historians are right to say. It is impossible to be consistent about this because arguments always revolve around us.

Students should be encouraged to make connections with The Map is Not Territory units and draw history (including Cubist history). They also disagreed on evidenty issues. Herodotus extended his story beyond living memory and, as you know, told hearsay as evidence. It is therefore not entirely right to accuse him of credulity; he reports these things only for his readers, so that he can judge for himself. However, he attributes, on strange occasions, a historical causality to the will of the gods. If we see in this first historical dispute a shift towards greater disciplinary rigour, this seems to be at the expense of a broad vision, a concern for the diversity of human experience and the willingness to take real risks with evidence. Many of the differences between the new history of culture and traditional historical methods are reflected today in Thucydides` response to herodotus methods – breadth and imagination, precision and rigor. One could say a lot about a modern historian by asking how he positions himself in relation to the first two historians. To find out, I interviewed people who participated in the Stonewall Uprising, historians who had studied the history of L.G.B.T.Q., and contemporary queere writers. It turns out that it wasn`t just the question of who threw the first stone: apparently, no one can agree on almost everything on Stonewall. How should we approach written academic history under the aegis of a totalitarian regime? The great fault line, which defines many disagreements in modern historiography, runs along the division between the political right and the left.
Since World War II, there have been fundamental and often irreconcilable differences between historians who accepted one or more of the many variants of Marxist historicism and those who refused all this understanding of the nature of history. The following grid describes the main paths of knowledge identified in the TOK history program, as well as the areas indicated, which must be taken into account, especially with regard to history. These are placed in a grid with a question that covers all sorts of cross-talking points….
