Slovenian Historiography between the two World Wars and the History of Culture

  • Slovenian cultural history has rather been the domain of specialist research disciplines, such as literary and art history, musicology and pedagogy. Slovenian historiography has only just begun to deal with these topics. This is partly due to the fact that it was politically used by the past regime which compelled it to study and extol the more recent national history, but also to a relatively small national territory, population and number of researchers. Their intention to cover all important historical topics is really a task that only a larger national historiography than the Slovenian can tackle.
