Akash answered your question.
but how is it related to historiography
From the web.... Cultural relativism is the view that no culture is superior to any other culture when comparing systems of morality, law, politics, etc. It's the philosophical notion that all cultural beliefs are equally valid and that truth itself is relative, depending on the cultural environment. Those who hold to cultural relativism hold that all religious, ethical, aesthetic, and political beliefs are completely relative to the individual within a cultural identity. Relativism often includes moral relativism (ethics depend on a social construct), situational relativism (right or wrong is based on the particular situation), and cognitive relativism (truth itself has no objective standard). Histiography historiography, the writing of history, especially the writing of history based on the critical examination of sources, the selection of particular details from the authentic materials in those sources, and the synthesis of those details into a narrative that stands the test of critical examination. The term historiography also refers to the theory and history of historical writing. When the concept of historiography is considered as a cultural/ ideological/ political practice on the past, popular historiography through the new media can empower individuals to be active, grassroots citizen historiographers in the information society. By producing media contents, such as photographs, individuals can negotiate and (re) create the dominant historical interpretation on a meaningful past. Moreover, it furthers an alternative historiography to propose counter-hegemonic interpretation of the past challenging the dominant historiography in society. Ultimately, individuals become able to actively participate in the cultural politics of historiography through the media production. READ THIS FOR YOUR LAST QUESTION!! :D
Thanks so much :)
