Marta Verginella, Narrazioni nazionali e usi pubblici del passato nell’area Alto Adriatica tra Otto e Novecento
About the workshop:
International scientific workshop gathered Italian, Spanish, French and Argentinian professionals to discuss the often conflictual and complex relation between public use of history and the historiography developed in the domain of scientific research. In light of various historical cases the workshop focused primarily upon the impact of nationalisms in explaining the past and the role of intellectuals in cases of political abuse of the past.
