"Decentering History" describes the expansion of historical writing in the decades after World War II to include the study of working people and other non-elite populations and women and to move beyond a focus on Europe or the West. Two examples are then given--one concerning late medieval literary figures, another concerning the culture of slaves--to suggest how one tell local or focussed stories with a global perspective.
