Abstract

Avec Médiéval et militant. Penser le contemporain à travers le Moyen Âge, c’est à une réflexion d’ampleur sur le phénomène du médiévalisme que Tommaso di Carpegna Falconieri nous convie. Frère siamois de l’histoire médiévale, né comme elle du romantisme et de l’ère des nationalismes au xixe siècle, le médiévalisme, que l’on pourrait définir comme la projection dans le présent d’un ou plusieurs Moyen Âges idéalisés, a subi une éclipse toute relative dans l’après-guerre avant de revenir hanter les consciences européennes avec toujours plus de force depuis la chute de l’Union soviétique. Que veut dire la floraison des références au Moyen Âge, depuis les milliers de fêtes médiévales qui parcourent l’Europe jusqu’aux utilisations politiques de tout genre, en passant par l’invention de cultures néo-médiévales qui envahissent aujourd’hui bibliothèques, cinémas et ordinateurs ? Quel rapport ce médiévalisme entretient-il avec l’histoire scientifique médiévale ? Quels sont les liens entre cette invocation permanente, qui tient tantôt du mythe, tantôt de la boîte à outils conceptuelle, et les redéfinitions en cours de la société européenne et occidentale ? C’est cet ensemble de questions, et bien d’autres qu’interroge cet essai qui plonge dans l’histoire du xixe et du xxe siècle pour éclairer le présent et le futur du médiévalisme.

Abstract

Some of the most pressing contemporary issues (ecological crisis, migration and integration, fragmented worldviews, social media, fake news, extremist politics and terrorism) can be understood more profoundly through how they interact with both individual and collective forces of nostalgia. Nostalgia is politics, but these politics are also interwoven with media and culture. Notwithstanding how nostalgia is used or contextualized in terms of politics and social practices, commodification or personal development, its power is primarily situated within its efficacy as a governing, influential human emotion. The vast and luminous contributions to this special issue on contemporary nostalgia are all investigating the role different aesthetic media formats (film, music, literature, computer games) plays in nostalgic negotiations with style, history, migration, love, nationalism, diaspora, irony, modernity, colonial and postcolonial discourses, and adoption. Mutually, these essays stand out as important, original, critical contributions to the expanding field of nostalgia studies and offer a valued insight on our world.
