Cultural history: disciplinary borderlands in the time of border-scrapping

by Irina Savelieva 

The paper analyzes the objects, concepts and methods of cultural history / histoire culturelle / Kulturgeschichte / kulturnaya istoriya, a modern historical subdiscipline that exists in different  national historiographical traditions. 
This subdiscipline’s objects of study, such as social institutions, social networks, daily 
interactions, childhood, cultural memory, corporality, etc., lie in a borderland. Therefore, the paper focuses on interdisciplinary interaction in relation to history and raises the question of the institutional boundaries of disciplines.
