Postmodern? Perhaps: But Historical? A Reply to Barbara Norman.
Gabella, Marcy Singer
Journal of Curriculum Studies, v28 n6 p725-30 Nov-Dec 1996
Presents a response to, and critique of, the purely postmodernist approach to the study of history. Maintains that an appreciation of the subjective and constructed nature of knowledge still can be integrated, as a component, into a study of the understanding, construction, and transcription of history.
