Alltagsgeschichte is a form of microhistory that was particularly prevalent amongst German historians during the 1980s. It was founded by historians Alf Luedtke (Wikipedia page [1]) and Hans Medick (German Wikipedia page [2])..

The name comes from German, where Alltag means "everyday life"; it can thus be roughly translated as "everyday history".

In this sense, Alltagsgeschichte can be considered part of the wider Marxian historical school of 'history from below'.
