The subject of history is becoming bigger and bigger each passing day since history is being made every day. Even facts concerning the earliest history are evolving due to the discovery of fossils from prehistory. This makes me wonder about its trajectory in future. Will it become too unwieldly to study comprehensively? What do you think would be the approach?

Some parts of history will just be skipped in the future so they will talk about what is going on nowadays and probably about what happened 100 years ago, it's all about highlighting things that happened in the past and we're going to be that 'past' someday.

History will way dominate because it is the voice of the future and so i see historian building the future from the experience of the past in an advanced way.

I am very optimistic about the future as long as humans control it and not machines. I believe we will become a multi-planetary species in about a hundred years and the economy will be greater and there will be lower poverty. United States will still be the dominating country and there will be more self driving cars than people actually driving cars.

I think history will always be a subject to learn because history shows what people did or from what events they have gone through. One can learn from the mistakes of others. And anyways history is an interest subject to learn.

Well I think the future will be very tough but better than previous years and we will see empires and government rise and fall with one revolution after the other but I don't see the United States dominating the world politics, they have angered more foreign countries than the United Kingdom has ever done during their imperialistic era.

I see China and Africa rising and dragging the international political spheres with nations of Europe and US.

The future of history will still be about history. We cannot escape the fact that history will always be about our pasts. History makes our world grow. Without history we'd be nothing. If we know nothing about history then we'll never know what happened from the past so history for me is very important.

Yeah, History is both our past and future including our present, that's why we always hear that history repeats itself. History still has a far place to go in our lives and we should take it far because the experience of the past help guide the future.

Every day that pass become part of our history and I am sure that the future of our history is us, and right now, we are the one who is creating the history for the future, and soon we will be the one who will study by the future students. That is why we should always makes everyday the best day of our life so the future will be happy that their future ancestors live happily ever after.
