Abstract [en]

The article is a comment on Kim Salomon's essay in this number of Scandia. I argue that Salomon's analysis of the meaning of the different turns, and especially the cultural turn, in history underestimates the demands for and possibilities of self-reflection that the turns in the humanities have raised to the historical community. The changes that have occurred within research in the humanities over the last decades will probably give historians new challenges as well, both in terms of historical research done in departments not associated primarily with history and as a challenge to historian's identities as historians.
