Making History in Iran

This chapter explores the role of private institutions and associations, including schools and committees, in creating new spaces for the production and circulation of histories outside of the imperial court. The relatively autonomous character of most of these schools and educational associations—often receiving no funding from the state—facilitated the writing of diverse historical narratives in textbooks rarely seen in later periods. This chapter then turns to how after the outbreak of the Constitutional Revolution, historians highlighted the civic function of history emphasizing the centrality of the “people” and the “nation” as agents of political change instead of monarchs and their ministers.

Keywords:   schools, citizenship, Constitutional Revolution, textbooks, teachers, associations, transnational, world history
