History? Because we've changed how we write history. It's not just about looking at the state and the sources it generates to understand how things happened, and even celebrating that as necessary progress, no matter the cost. Now it's about putting that in tension with other kinds of archives - generated by corporations, by individuals, by different non-state groups, etc, and trying to understand how they are just as much historical actors as the state or those who are seen as wielding great power.
For years now, since the 60s and 70s, we've been focusing on "history from below" and things like "micro-history", which focus on something small and direct - the history of a small town over a decade, the history of a singular event, the history of a battle. this was because the stories of too many people were being left out and it was distorting our understanding how history. One example is US slavery. For years, the only way it was understood by historians was from the perspective of the slave masters and the US government--it was the history of white, powerful men (written by white, elite men), in other words. But starting in the 50s, with Eugene Genovese's Roll Jordan, Roll, we began to look at slavery from the perspective of the enslaved. That changed how we thought about slavery. I'd say that was a more than valuable shift in perspective. There was actually a time in the writing of history, where we literally did not care about the people who were most effected by the US slave trade. Now we do.
But to be fair lately, there has been more of a focus on going back to big history, but re-writing it from the perspective of a different set of actors - the history of the music industry and copyright law from the perspective of piracy, or the history of the 60s and vietnam war from the perspective of rock music fans in San Francisco and Saigon. There is an attempt to retain big history, big sweeps of time, and big stories, but through the lens of a greater number of people. The truth is that since the sources are written by people, with a particular perspective, the story is by necessity complex and at times contradictory. I'd argue that more accurately depicts how we live our lives, but YMMV, I guess.
Again, you don't have to agree or disagree with what I"m saying and you're welcome to think we can dig out some sort of objective truth--lots of people think that (I think that could be a noble goal, but am not sure it's attainable).... I'm talking about how historians write history.
