The call Cultural History is a new line of research that if it differs from dedicated History to study the arts, literature, the philosophy, must be faced as the New Cultural History, that do not discard the cultural expressions of the raised social classrooms, more prioritizes the historical construction from the manifestations of the anonymous masses, by what it is considered popular.

What it is considered popular? Therefore, it is looked to work with the plurality, using itself of concepts as agricultural and urban, masculine and feminine, and so on. To work with the term culture, for Burke, is still a more difficult task of what to define ' ' popular' ' , therefore this term already was used to mention itself to the arts and sciences, later used in the description of popular manifestations, and finally, to assign social practical devices and.
