In history, there isn't a "developing theory" per se like you would find in a scientific field. However, there are always new methods of historical interpretation being explored, and ongoing debates about how to understand and interpret the past. One approach that has been developing over the last few decades is called "public history," which emphasizes engaging the general public in historical understanding through things like museums, documentaries, historical novels, and even video games. Additionally, digital history is also gaining interest with historians using digital technologies to research, present historical narratives or analyzing large datasets for their studies. Moreover, "postcolonial" and "subaltern" studies focus on the historical experiences of groups which traditionally were not given much attention in mainstream historical narratives, such as colonized peoples, women, and the lower classes. However, historical theories are more about how we approach and interpret historical facts rather than developing and changing understandings of a scientific or natural process. It is always best to apply a range of theories and perspectives to historical investigation to gain a more nuanced understanding.
