Abstract

"Volksgeschichte" (Ethnic history) was a branch of historiography originating on the 1920s under a string chauvinist and racist paradigm. The role of "Ostforschung" (research into the East) and "Westforschung" (research into the West) has been the focus of controversial debates in recent years. The Cambridge Conference "Paths of continuity" in 1994, the publications of Oberkrome, Fahlbusch and Haar discussed the institutional and social history of the emerging discipline. The role of archaeology in the Volksgeschichte-paradagm has not yet been looked at in any detail. The present volume tries to put Volksgeschichte into its discipplinary context, but also looks at parallel developments in France and Poland, and on the methodological developments associated with it. The volume does not attempt to give an overview, but instead concentrates on three subjects: -the growing importance of prehistory among the discliplines involved in "Ethnic history" -looking for the roots of the dynamics of the new paradigm -the connection of "Volksgeschichte" to the historiography of other European states.
