AGUIRRE ROJAS, Carlos Antonio. El queso y los gusanos: un modelo de historia critica para el analisis de las culturas subalternas. Rev. Bras. Hist. [online]. 2003, vol.23, n.45, pp. 71-101. ISSN 1806-9347. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-01882003000100004.
This essay attempts to recreate the guidelines of the cultural history model that Carlo Ginzburg, the Italian micro historian, has been developing for almost four decades, and that was molded in a commendable way in his already famous book EL QUESO Y LOS GUSANOS. So, it tries to reconstruct the historical cultural versions that this book and the Ginzburg´s model criticizes, as well other authors' perspectives for which this model intends to dwell and take on precedings over others. It deals with the unique originality of the specific cultural history proposal of Carlo Ginzburg, in part characterized by trying to draw on problems from "the victims own perspective" of the studied historical processes.
