Workshop “The ‘long 19th century’ as a temporal concept”
An open discussion on the long 19th century as a temporal concept hosted by the EUI Political History Working Group (PHWG).
An open discussion on the long 19th century as a temporal concept – its values and limitations, its potential and dangers, whether its disappearance from historiography should encourage us to bring it back or to explore new temporal conceptualisations.
The discussions will be based on reading the following texts:
• Blackbourn, David. “Honey, I Shrunk German History.” German Studies Association Newsletter 38, no. 2 (2013): 44–53.
• Marchand, Suzanne. “Embarrassed by the Nineteenth Century.” In Consortium on Revolutionary Europe, 1750-1850: Selected Papers 2002, edited by Bernard Cook, Susan V. Nicassio, Michael F. Pavkovich, and Karl A. Roider Jr., 1–16. Florida State Univeristy: Institute on Napoleon and the French Revolution, 2004.
• Osterhammel, Jurgen, and Patrick Camiller. The Transformation of the World: A Global History of the Nineteenth Century. America in the World. Princeton University Press, 2014. (chapter 2 + 3)
