Dismanatling Hegemony in the Historical Narrative
by Adams, Brandon, M.A., Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville, 2020, 93; 27957166
Abstract (Summary)

Within the world, some systems have historically targeted marginalized groups to be left out of historical narratives. This system is composed of multiple facets that all work in tandem and allow for this marginalization to continue. The components of this system include legal methods such as laws and court practices and cultural techniques such as media manipulation as well as the manipulation of the historical narrative. In response to this system, many of the scholars have created a counter-narratives. These counter-narratives that allow them to recapture their humanity. As well as challenge the hegemony of the United States with their narrative of history.
