What is HiSTORY?

HiSTORY is the study of past events that relate to a particular thing, subject, place, people, or organization etc., particularly in human affairs. It is usually a chronological record of events, often including an explanation or commentary of those events.

What’s the difference between HiSTORY and THE PAST?

At first glance, history and the past might seem the same, but are they they really? In reality it would be impossible to account for every single thing that occurs in the past, so historians have to pick and choose what they think is most important, and then organize it for presentation in a narrative. History is an inherently interpretive process, similar to an artwork, thus making historians more like artists. This video looks at inherent biases, subjective interpretation, incorrect information, and historical fiction, such as Downton Abbey, where the historical context is accurate but the characters are fictional. Is Downton Abbey as relevant as a historical text?… see this episode to find out in this PBS Idea Channel video

The history of HiSTORY

The origin of word history dates back to its first known use in the 14th century. The Greek word is ἱστορίαhistoria, meaning inquiry, knowledge acquired by investigation, the study of the past, and specifically relates to humans. The word was also known as histoire, historie (in Middle English), estoire, histoire (in Anglo-French), and historia (in Latin, as in Greek).
