In this introduction to cultural history as a sub-discipline the reader will find the key steps in the historical development of the field, from 1850 to the present. It surveys different ways cultural history has been practised exploring intellectual history, the history of ideas and concepts, of mentalities, of symbols and representations and of languages and discourses. Cultural History also maps the territory cultural history most effectively enlightens, gender; the family and sexuality, the body; senses and emotions and images; material culture and consumption, the media and communication.
