What does historiography suggest about history?
A. that it is a fact-based discipline
B. that it changes each decade
C. that it is open to interpretation
D. that there is only one correct interpretation
Answer C: Historiography supposes that history is always open to interpretation. Scholars can be predisposed to add their viewpoints to either concur or contest the existing historiography. It provides historians with various contexts to how ideas and events were viewed over time. Thus, context is vital to studying the subject because it nourishes historians’ views concerning people, events, and ideas.
