    The environment of history

    Diacronie. Rivista di Storia Contemporanea

    The environment of history is a space in the journal “Diacronie. Rivista di Storia Contemporanea” intended to reflect in a historical perspective on one of the most characterizing themes of recent years, the environmental issue. In this space we wish to host contributions that approach environmental history from a wide spectrum of interpretations. We welcome approaches based on its most classical meaning, as a historical discipline that investigates the relationship between humans and the environment and combines different disciplinary fields, and approaches that foreground new themes, scales of analysis and methodologies.

    Seminar - Prehistory and Antiquity

    Classicamente. Dialoghi senesi sul mondo antico

    Diritto e Ritualità

    The full online seminar “Diritto e Ritualità” 10-11 November 2021 will focus on questions of Greek law and ritual forms in the ancient world, investigated through the lens of anthropology. We will explore the relationship between rhetoric and law, the evidence of judicial practices in literary sources and some issues related to the analysis of specific epigraphic sources (defixiones and prayers for justice). In the second day, we will try to put some ritual forms of the ancient world into context. In particular, we will investigate the function of knucklebones in Greek sanctuaries and the relationship between the ludic dimension and the ritual one. Late antique adoratio will also be discussed in light of the most recent theories developed by Anthropology and Ritual Studies.

    Climate change and digital sound and audiovisual preservation

    IV International Congress of Digital Archives

    El cambio climático es el proceso que pone en riesgo la vida, la salud y el desarrollo de las naciones. De acuerdo con la Organización de las Naciones Unidas, en muchos países las temperaturas han presentado niveles máximos sin precedentes, los niveles de gases de efecto invernadero están aumentando, el nivel del mar está subiendo y los desastres naturales se agravan. Las soluciones encaminadas a crear economías verdes y sustentables van acompañadas de cambios en diferentes aspectos de la actividad humana. La investigación científica ocupa un espacio relevante y necesario para formular aportaciones que minimicen el impacto del cambio climático en la sociedad. Uno de los ámbitos poco estudiados, con incidencia en el cambio climático, es el relativo a los archivos digitales sonoros y audiovisuales. No obstante que la preservación digital de archivos sonoros y audiovisuales genera de forma constante basura tecnológica y requiere del uso continuo de energía.

    Transcrire l’oralité politique dans l’Italie communale (XIIe-début du XVe siècle)

    La prise de parole en assemblée caractérise la vie politique et institutionnelle de l’Italie communale. Pour autant, notamment en raison du manque de discours conservés, les travaux consacrés à la transcription de l’oralité politique et à la diversité de ses expressions (au-delà de l’assemblée) sont encore rares. Cette journée d’étude, qui se tiendra à Rome le 28 avril 2022, est envisagée comme un atelier d’échange permettant la mise en commun de travaux réalisés ou en cours sur cette thématique. Elle a pour but d’engager des chercheurs et chercheuses aux approches méthodologiques distinctes dans une lecture collective de la spécificité des sources écrites transmettant une oralité politisée. L’objectif est de dégager des grilles d’analyse conjointes, des problématisations transversales et de nourrir une réflexion commune sur les apports et les limites d’une histoire du monde communal fondée sur ces documents.

    Assist and Unify? Nation Building and Welfare in the Upper Adriatic and Eastern Baltic Sea Region in the 20th Century

    Monographic issue of «Qualestoria. Rivista di storia contemporanea»

    Questioning the primacy of the nation-state, a special issue of Qualestoria to be published in December 2022 aims to analyze how different welfare practices have represented a tool of nation-building in territories contested by various national groups or states. To what extent have different political contexts affected the use of welfare for nation-building purposes? What role have welfare practices played in strengthening the position of the titular nation or in attempting to integrate/assimilate minorities? What outcomes have “bottom-up” initiatives propelled? The special issue will try answer these questions with a focus on the eastern Baltic Sea region and the Upper Adriatic. Contributions related to other east central European areas will also be considered.

    History, architecture and heritage: building the architectural identity. Milan, Europe (1796-1848)

    Ce colloque international propose une réflexion collective et transdisciplinaire sur les multiples significations du concept de patrimoine architectural, artistique et culturel dans la période comprise entre la fin du XVIIIe et la première moitié du XIXe siècle. Le champ géographique d’investigation s’ouvre aux principales villes italiennes et européennes qui ont été touchées par le phénomène de redécouverte mais aussi de réutilisation - parfois abusive - de leur patrimoine architectural et culturel au cours de cette période. Le colloque propose ainsi de réfléchir sur le concept de « patrimoine » entre 1796 et 1848 en Europe, son évolution et ses interprétations en rapport avec l’histoire de l'architecture et de la ville.

    Tradition, Persistence, and Innovation in Artistic Craftsmanship and in Building and Architectural Production between the Napoleonic Era and the Restoration

    Milan in a European Context

    With Milan proclaimed first the capital of the Cisalpine Republic in 1797 (from 1802, Italian Republic) and then in 1805 the capital of the Kingdom of Italy, the city was challenged to reconsider and rebuild its image and its urban spaces in order to adapt them to its new role. Part of a network of capitals responding to a single central power, both political and cultural, Milan experienced a period that featured significant incentives for public and private architectural building works and for the transformation of urban spaces. These conditions make the Lombard capital a privileged context in which to investigate the multiple forms of organization of artisanal and artistic work, as well as the circulation of people and materials. The seminar aims to reflect on the dialectic between the new status quo and the centuries-old stratified traditions inherent to the Milanese territory, also taking into consideration the Restoration period, when, in the new political-administrative structure of the Lombard-Veneto Kingdom, Milan, while remaining the capital, found itself in a new context that established a variety of artistic geographies.

    The legacy of the arts: ideas and representations

    The transmission of knowledge through tradition, orality and Academia

    The second edition of the conference on doctoral studies in art and musicology aims to focus on research on the transmission of knowledge through the arts as a means and source of knowledge in the art world. The images and musical documents that have been preserved from ancient times to the present day - throughout the world - have made it possible to understand aspects of the social, cultural and religious life of many civilizations and also to be the same reflection of these. In this way, Art and Music, as resources, have been one of the key elements to be able to understand a culture since it has been the mechanism through which humans have been able to capture and transmit ideas and knowledge.

    Contagion. Knowledge, Practices and Experiences from the Late Middle Ages to the Twenty- First Century

    «Genesis. Journal of the Italian Society of Women Historians», 1/2022

    We encourage proposals for papers based on original research in a long time span (from the Late Middle Ages to the present), on Italian, European and non-Western geo-political contexts. The history of epidemics and pandemics is an ever-growing and broad research field. Therefore, we have chosen to focus our analysis on issues of intersectionality, i.e. on the ways in which disease has historically been represented, treated and experienced through the lens of class, gender and race, so as to shed light on connections and tensions that at times exacerbated these differences. The intersectional dimension of contagion is one aspect of various asymmetries of power. We encourage contributors to approach power dynamics not through the simple binary opposition command/subalternity, but alert to the mediation and circulation occurring within specific contexts. Traditions of knowledge, too, are part of such circulation, which stimulates hybridity and cross- fertilization. This is a crucial aspect of our research agenda.

    (Re)reading travellers to the East

    Shaping identities and building the nation in post-unification Italy

    The conference (Re)reading Travellers to the East, shaping identities and nation-building in post-unification Italy approaches early modern travel literature (15th-18th centuries) from an innovative historiographical perspective. Rather than to discuss the documentary value of these sources for the times and spaces in which they were produced, the aim is to focus on the re-readings and re-editions to which they have been subjected, in order to highlight how travel literature has been (re)used for political and ideological purposes. The conference examines the way in which these early modern documents have been mobilised, since the 19th century and up to the present day, in the context of the formation of collective identities and nation-building. The conference focuses on the relations between the Italian peninsula and the countries which, in modern times, were referred to as the Orient, the Indies or the Levant.

    Conference, symposium - History

    The question of the emancipation of women in Italy (1815-1930)

    Le colloque sera centré sur les discours produits au XIXe siècle et au début du XXe siècle sur l’émancipation des femmes en Italie dans toute leur variété et leur complexité, y compris les discours opposés à l’indépendance féminine. On prêtera une attention précise aux multiples déclinaisons du féminisme en Italie (les revendications des écrivaines, des « émancipationnistes »-emancipatrici, ainsi que des défenseurs des droits des femmes) au-delà de la tendance hagiographique qui a consisté à présenter des biographies élogieuses et idéalisées des femmes d’action du Risorgimento, ainsi que des interprétations historiographiques qui ont souvent réduit les positions féministes aux revendications suffragistes. Les récentes recherches en histoire culturelle, qui ont considérablement élargi l’approche de l’histoire des femmes au cours de la période de la construction de la nation italienne, seront ici mobilisées pour faire émerger des lectures originales et présenter des pensées méconnues.
