This book is an inquiry into the state of historical knowledge production in Nepal from both diachronic and landscape perspectives. Based on documentary research, interviews and a thorough review of the existing literature, it offers a compact analysis of the present state of teaching and research in history and reviews the institutional and methodological innovations and weaknesses of the past dozen years. The authors survey the institutions, processes and outcomes related to history both within the university locations and beyond, and trace how these varied locations and practices have evolved in the recent years. They also recommend specific institutional rearrangements and support mechanisms to promote both the diversity and quality in the disciplinary structures and contents of history in Nepal.
