Historical significance1

Historical Significance

  • An event, idea or person may be historically significant if:

  • Reveals patterns

    • Previously hidden?

    • How entrenched?

    • Still exist today?

  • Results in change

    • How profound a change?

    • For whom and how many?

    • How lasting was the change?

  • Part of the cultural narrative

    • Is it questioned?

    • How widely held?

Implications:

“It is significant because it is in the history book,” and “It is significant because I am interested in it,” are inadequate explanations of historical significance.

“Poor, rural and female. Could this person’s life have any historical significance? In the past, most historians would have said no, but recently, definitions of historical significance have changed.”
