        Subject: centre to periphery?

This is undoubtedly a naive but difficult question. I'd be very grateful
for pointers.

When did the attention of scholars turn from centre to periphery? from
the socially privileged to the demotic? It's everywhere now, but I
expect that a turning point occurred sometime in the latter half of the
20th Century and would like to know what set it off. And I expect that
like any historical change, this turning point is somewhat arbitrary,
that prescient precedents can be identified. But, to put it crudely,
measured by numbers of articles and books, when did the graph start its
steep ascent? What marked that ascent?

Many thanks.
