Abstract

This essay introduces a collection of articles spurred by the New Historians of EU law. These scholars offer a new way to reflect, in an interdisciplinary manner, on what EU law scholarship has accomplished until now and how it has shaped our shared European legal culture. Among the goals attained by the New Historians, there is a commitment to better understand how legal change has occurred in EU law through critical legal histories of understudied everyday practices. The aim is to offer new and multiple narratives to shed light on Europe’s past with implications for its future.

Keywords: European Union law, legal history, critical legal history
