Wang Liang;  
Contemporary spirit is the main concern in the history of classical culture,which focuses on the elite culture instead of the lives of common people or the diversity of culture.However,in conformance with the trend of cultural turn in the humanity and social science fields after the Second World War,taking in the top-down research method in social history and learning from the researches of anthropology as well as other fields,the new cultural history reverses this complexion and forms a special research paradigm,which conducts interdisciplinary studies and makes microinvestigation in the form of story-telling with the culture and its significance as research objects.Consequently it expands the research field of history and develops an innovation movement on the theory and method in historiography in Europe and the United States.However,the New Cultural History has its drawbacks,such as vague research objects,the fragmented research orientation and the negativity in the objective history.In addition,since the new cultural history was introduced into China,it has combined with the social history and is called social cultural history,which has more research space in the future.
