On Historical Distance

Mark Salber Phillips

Yale University Press

This chapter examines the sentimental mode in more popular forms of historical representation. It discusses the notion that an openly affective approach to the past is the sure mark of work written for a popular audience and suggest that one of the striking features of historical representation in the late decades of the twentieth century is the convergence of popular and academic histories on the ground of feeling. It also considers the interest of academic publishers in the so-called cross-over market of popular and academic histories.

Keywords:   historical representation, sentimental mode, affective approach, popular histories, academic histories, academic publishers
