Isig | 59th study week – Italy and Germany | Dialogue between historiographies
The stories of Italy and Germany have long worked together and influenced each other. However, there are few studies that have dealt with the theme of the intertwining and difference elements between the two national historiographies. The Italian-German Institute of Trento dedicates the 59th Study Week to the analysis of some recent historiographic trends and research perspectives in modern and contemporary history, proposing a cross-examination between Italy and Germany.
We will be reflecting, in particular, on the persistence or overcoming of national paradigms and on the role of research perspectives pursuing transnational history.
In this context, the recent historiography of the “distant neighbors” (Ferne Nachbarn) will be discussed. The conference is also the first initiative of the new ISIG research plan, which in the coming years will privilege a cultural history setting for a history of mediatization from the modern age to the contemporary age.
