The purpose of history writing has changed significantly over time. What was once an applied practice became more academic and subject to university norms in the nineteenth and the twentieth centuries. The current existential threats and the new ways in which information is delivered and received in the twenty-first century necessitates rethinking historical content and narrative if the discipline is to remain viable in the future.
