Abstract

What is the place of the French Revolution in teaching history? What are the ideological trends and pedagogic messages that are used in school textbooks? Are these textbooks simple "national autobiographies" or the faithful reflection of historical research on the topic? The contributions collected in this volume seek to answer some of these questions, taking into account different countries, from France to Russia, from the United States to China. In a time like ours, where much is said about the public use of history, the relationship between historical research, teaching and dissemination remains a fundamental theme.

Abstract

The naval leader has taken centre stage in traditional naval histories. However, while the historical narrative has been fairly consistent the development of various navies has been accompanied by assumptions, challenges and competing visions of the social characteristics of naval leaders and of their function. Whilst leadership has been a constant theme in historical studies, it has not been scrutinised as a phenomenon in its own right. This book examines the critical period in Europe between 1700 -1850, when political, economic and cultural shifts were bringing about a new understanding of the individual and of society. Bringing together context with a focus on naval leadership as a phenomenon is at the heart of this book, a unique collaborative venture between British, French and Spanish scholars. As globalisation develops in the twenty-first century the significance of navies looks set to increase. This volume of essays aims to place naval leadership in its historical context.

Abstract

“L’età della storia”, così Foucault, in Les mots et les choses, definisce lo sconvolgimento dell’episteme occidentale avvenuto alla fine del Settecento e nei primi decenni dell’Ottocento che dà l’avvio all’era della modernità. Foucault teorizza il disfacimento del sapere classico e la conseguente mutazione dall’”ordine” alla “storia”: all’ordine del sapere classico, ai valori della tradizione, si è sostituita l’idea di progresso, nonché la visione frammentata di una realtà naturale molteplice, le cui variazioni sono legate allo scorrere del tempo. Il valore normativo della tradizione viene, d’altra parte, contestato, negli ultimi decenni del diciottesimo secolo, da vari sommovimenti politici che sconvolgono l’ordine tradizionale delle nazioni europee: la Rivoluzione americana crea un governo razionale fondato sul diritto naturale; la Rivoluzione francese recide traumaticamente i legami con i valori di una monarchia secolare; i suoi drammatici sviluppi, il Terrore, le guerre europee, il crollo dell’impero napoleonico impongono, nel corso degli anni, la consapevolezza concreta dell’incidere storico. Questa irruzione della dimensione storica nel mondo europeo è stata, nel biennio 2013-2015, al centro dei lavori del seminario “Metamorfosi dei Lumi” che presenta, nel suo ottavo volume, un insieme di articoli centrati sul processo di temporalizzazione che caratterizza il tournant des Lumières, nelle esperienze di vita e in tutti i settori dello scibile.

Abstract

"In the two centuries since Mozart’s La clemenza di Tito was first performed, and the almost three centuries since Metastasio created the libretto, many rumours, myths and prejudiced opinions have gathered around the work, creating a narrative that Mozart, Mazzolà and their contemporaries would scarcely recognise. The essays in this book contribute ideas, facts and images that will draw the twenty-first-century reader closer to the events of Central Europe in the late eighteenth century, and these new facts and ideas will help peel off some of the transmitted accretions that may hinder a modern listener from enjoying and understanding the opera in all its fullness. In this sense the essays present the reappraisal promised in the title.

The book is a product of the Performing Premodernity research project, funded by the Swedish Foundation for Humanities and Social Sciences and based at the department of theatre studies of Stockholm University. Envisioned and edited by Magnus Tessing Schneider and Ruth Tatlow, the five essays by internationally renowned Mozart scholars are preceded by a chronology and a selection of original documents presented in new and revised parallel translations."
